WEATHER warnings for thunderstorms are in force tomorrow and Thursday – so will you be affected by the downpours?
The Met Office has yellow weather warnings in place from 12pm to 9pm tomorrow due to thunderstorms in the east of Scotland.
And during the same timeframe on Thursday, that “danger to life” warning will extend to the north of England and Scotland – apart from the west coast.
The Weather Outlook maps show torrential rain hitting Scotland at midday tomorrow with the Midlands and parts of Wales also seeing rain.
The south will be clear of rain – until Thursday which will see rain across the whole of the country, The Weather Outlook adds.
“Thursday and Friday bring heavy showers and at times they could be thundery”
Torrential rain is forecast in Scotland and the east of the England.
By 9pm London will witness heavy showers.
Brian Gaze, of the Weather Outlook, said: “Tomorrow showery rain affects much of the country with the heaviest outbreaks probably in the north.
“Later in the day they may extend into East Anglia and the south east.
“Some warm and humid spells of sunshine are expected too.”
He added that Thursday and Friday will see even worse weather.
Gaze continued: “Thursday and Friday bring heavy showers and at times they could be thundery.
“Temperatures rise and in the south they could reach a warm and humid 27C.”
Dr Claire Kennedy-Edwards, Senior Meteorologist, The Weather Company, agreed there would be a nationwide split bringing the driest sunniest conditions to the south this week with more muggy weather likely further north.
She said: “There will be warm humid conditions in the north despite the rain with highs reaching the low 20Cs across southern Scotland and northern England with some mild muggy nights too.
“In contrast, dry sunny and warm conditions will affect the south of the UK with highs of between 23C and 24C, with 25C forecast in London on Wednesday and Thursday.
“It will be less humid by the end of the week in a northwesterly flow but there will be plenty of dry warm weather across the southern regions of the UK and a scattering of showers further north.
“A much more settled outlook across the UK with plenty of sunshine and dry conditions is expected by the weekend.”
