Eight DAYS of rain en route
June’s stunning heatwave will fizzle out as storms sweep the country for eight days from today – but the mild heat is set to return soon.
Brits have been basking in glorious sunshine this week, with the mercury shooting to a sweltering 28C as revelers enjoyed their first Glastonbury Festival since 2019.
But the Met Office has now warned of flooding at Worthy Farm as torrential rain threatens the fun.
A new weather warning for thunderstorms is in effect today between 1pm and 10pm from Edinburgh in Scotland to Wakefield in West Yorkshire.
And temperatures will drop as the weekend begins.
Chief forecaster Paul Gundersen said the weather “will return to near normal for the time of year”, with highs of just 20C by the weekend.
“The unclear pattern is expected to continue to dominate into early next week,” he said.
His colleague Alex Deakin said low pressure will be the “dominant feature” of the weekend.
“If you’re not a fan of heat and humidity, then there’s good news because this cold front will sweep all of that away and bring in much fresher air,” he said.
