After severe rains flooded homes across the south of England, the sun will return.
After severe rain swamped homes and businesses across the south of England, summer is set to return.
Yesterday evening, London was hit by flash floods, which swamped streets and cars. The South West had been battered by severe rains just hours before. But, according to the Met Office, a mini heatwave is on the way for the rest of the week.
After a weather pattern blew in from the English Channel, triggering massive downpours and sending water flooding into properties, the better news will come as a great relief to many.
Ceilings fell as rain pelted the building, according to police. The London Fire Brigade stated that it has received over 150 flood-related calls in just south-west London.
Fire authorities in Dorset warned that the emergency line in London was being overburdened because so many people were dialing 999.
“There was some especially heavy rain near Bournemouth and Poole, and we saw 50 to 75mm of rain in one or two spots,” said Met Office meteorologist Steven Keates.
“Britons could enjoy dry weather with temperatures of up to 24C in central and southern England, and up to 18C in northern England and Scotland,” said Sarah Kent of the Met Office.
“Things will brighten up in the north-east of England and east Scotland as the day progresses.”
Tomorrow will be considerably warmer, with temperatures reaching 26 degrees Celsius (79 degrees Fahrenheit) in the south and 24 degrees Celsius (75 degrees Fahrenheit) in the north.
