Low Pressure Running The Show Again This Week
With low pressure well and truly in charge this week will see no respite to the wet weather will all parts seeing more showers (some heavy and thundery) and longer spells of rain.
Monday will see a changing of the guard as another low pressure system makes it's way in from the southwest to replace the original low pressure system which has been with us for several days. The system will move up through the channel before curving around to move into the north sea and drift north close to the east of the UK during Tuesday and into Wednesday.
What this will mean is some persistent rain will affect southern areas of England and South Wales during the day, elsewhere it's another day of sunshine and sharp showers, although they should be a little less widespread and generally less potent than they have been during the weekend.
Tuesday brings another batch of showers to all parts of the country, and again some will be heavy and thundery with hail mixed within them.
Wednesday and Thursday are days to watch as another low pressure system sweeps up from the southwest, this one could well move right across the country bringing some potentially very heavy rain, thunderstorms and strong winds with it. As we move toward the end of the week, there's not a great deal of change with more showery rain in the offing.
