UK Weather: Showery Father's Day, Remaining Changeable Next Week, But Warmer
Fifteen Flood Warnings and 34 Flood Alerts remain in place across the Midlands, parts of NW England and Lincolnshire, following days of heavy rainfall, the warnings mainly for stretches of the River Severn and Trent along with flood hit areas of low-lying Lincolnshire. The weather will continue changeable and cool over the next few days, with sunny spells and thundery showers today, similar on Monday too, though the southeast becoming drier and warmer. The general trend towards mid-week will be for it to become warmer across southern and eastern areas, perhaps reaching the mid-20s Celsius in the southeast. However, low pressure will still be close by, so showers are likely, heavy and thundery towards the south.
For now, there is a fair bit of cloud and showers from the word go this morning across southern, central and western areas. However, much of eastern England and eastern England Scotland has started dry and sunny.
An area of low pressure that has been close to the west these last few days will still be around close to the northwest today and next few days, so will bring breezy and showery conditions across many areas today, so sunshine and showers the general story for most today. Showers will locally be accompanied by hail, thunder and gusty winds – particularly towards the east, merging into longer spells of rain in the west. Temperatures this afternoon reaching 14-17C in the north, 17-20C in the south. A brisk southerly breeze across the south.
Showers or longer spells of rain, perhaps heavy and thundery, continuing to spread northeast across Wales, northern England, Northern Ireland and Scotland through this evening and overnight. Remaining largely dry with clear spells across the south and east of England.
As we start the new week, we still have a slow-moving area of low pressure close to the northwest, with a slow-moving cold front lying southwest to northeast across Wales and northern England on Monday generating a band of showery rain, which will tend to ease slowly southeast through the day. Mostly dry with hazy warm sunshine to the south across southern England and East Anglia. To the north of the front, some dry and sunny weather perhaps for the far north of England, but across Scotland and Northern Ireland we are likely to see heavy showers or thunderstorms throughout the day, bringing a risk of flooding in places. Temperatures across England and Wales reaching 18-21C, across Scotland and N. Ireland reaching 14-17C.
Low pressure to the NW will bring further showers on Tuesday across Scotland and Northern Ireland, but with some sunny spells in between. A brief ridge of high pressure will bring a lot dry and bright or sunny weather to England and Wales, however, low pressure moving up from the southwest may bring some showers to southern England by the evening. Temperatures reaching 16-19C in the north, 18-24C in the south.
Wednesday to Friday
An area of low pressure pushing up from the southwest across SE England on Wednesday will spread outbreaks of heavy rain, perhaps thundery, across large parts of England and Wales through the day. Low pressure close to the northwest bringing showers to Scotland and N. Ireland. Remaining showery on Thursday and Friday, cool in the north and west, warmer in the south and east – where temperatures look to reach the low 20s Celsius.
