BBC Weather: The UK has issued a weather warning for heavy rain and thunderstorms ahead of a wall of rain expected next week.
The BBC has predicted rain outbreaks across the UK ahead of a fresh wet weather front later this week.
Matt Taylor, a BBC weather forecaster, predicted heavy rain and thunderstorms over the UK. Temperatures will stay warm, but there will be thunderstorms and hail outbreaks, he said. He also stated that rainy weather will be averted in some locations.
However, a new wall of rain from the south will cover most of the UK as it travels northwards as the week progresses.
“The most of the showers are in the south,” Mr Taylor said.
“You’ll notice some large gaps surrounding you, and possibly a rumble of thunder at the south east corner during the following few hours.
“However, the thunder won’t arrive till later.
“It’s all travelling northwards; there will be rain on and off, with better sky appearing around southern parts.
“As the afternoon progresses, we begin to see showers develop across the northern regions of the country.
“We could see the most powerful of the downpours later, heavy with rain and thunder, across parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland, and northern England.”
The BBC Weather forecaster indicated that some parts of the UK will be spared from the rain.
On Sunday, temperatures will stay warm, with a low of 16 degrees in Aberdeen and a high of 21 degrees in Glasgow.
Temperatures throughout the rest of the country are anticipated to continue between 17 and 20 degrees.
“As we start the week, if you are out camping, especially during the first half of the week, this is not the kind of chart you want to see,” Mr Taylor said.
“There will be a deep region of low pressure that will push northwards and eastwards across the country,” says the forecaster.
“To begin with, there were numerous rain showers over Scotland on Monday.
“Away from that, there will be a good deal of light on Monday before cloud covers the area to the south.
“Then that low-pressure area will closing in on us.”
