UK weather – Cyclone brings 3-day washout with flood warnings, falling temperatures and frigid storms from TODAY

BRITS are expected to be soaked as a cyclone brings a three-day washout with flood warnings, falling temperatures and frigid storms from today.

The Met Office has warned that a cyclone stretching from Scandinavia to Spain will devastate Britain in the coming hours.

Flood warnings have already been issued for parts of Scotland and the north of England as the cyclone brings with it a heavy rain band, cool gales and thunder and lightning.

The sudden change will result in a brisk start to the Wimbledon Championships on Monday, although thankfully London will dodge the worst of the bad weather.

A massive low-pressure area off the west coast will send temperatures plummeting in parts of the country, with lows falling to 10C or 11C in the north and Scotland.

Brits could reach for their winter coats as temperatures in the more northerly parts drop to 4C overnight thanks to what UK Weather Service forecaster Jim Dale calls a “polar maritime air mass across the country”.

The Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) has already issued two flood warnings for Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders.

And meteorologist Martin Bowles warned of “further wet and windy weather” in the North West from Monday evening as showers sweep across the rest of the UK tomorrow.

Cloud cover is keeping temperatures mostly mild and in the single digits from some rural areas in the south-east – a far cry from the sweltering 34C of mid-June.

Skies should clear for much of the southeast beginning Monday evening and temperatures should rise, providing a moment of calm before another band of rain sweeps from mid-week.

Beginning today, a band of showers will move eastward with a risk of turning into a thunderstorm. The western areas will become dry with sunny periods until the afternoon.

On Tuesday it will be raining more and in places heavy with coastal storms.

The showers will hit for much of Wednesday and Thursday when they will be heavy and there is a risk of hail and thunder.

Met Office spokesman Oli Claydon told The Sun Online: “This will not be an Atlantic hurricane, just a low pressure system which is responsible for the weather in the UK this week. It comes after a high-pressure system took over across the UK.

“For much of this week we will see a low pressure system of rain and showers moving west to east at times.

“That means a fairly choppy working week, with conditions calming down again on Friday in the south and east and the high pressure crest moving in ahead of the weekend.

“That will not be the case for the north and west of the country, where there is likely to be more lower pressure with more wind and rain in the northwest.”

Rain will have Brits scrambling for their bollies and jumpers
