After A Stormy Night In The Southeast, Showery For The Rest Of The Week
Storms have been rumbling up from the south overnight, with southeast England seeing the lions share of the lightning strikes.
Another batch of heavy rain and thunder has arrived into southeast England in time for the Wednesday morning commute, bringing a lot of surface water and spray, before these too, clear northeast by mid-morning. Otherwise, much of England and Wales stay cloudy in the morning, with outbreaks of rain, perhaps thundery, likely almost anywhere. Drier and brighter morning across Northern Ireland, Scotland and perhaps the far north of England, though with showers affecting western Scotland and northern coasts of N. Ireland.
Drier, brighter and fresher conditions edging in from the west across much Wales, western and central England through the afternoon, though the odd shower can’t be ruled out. However, still a risk of some pulses of heavy rain or thunderstorms towards eastern England, before clearing by the evening. Showers for western Scotland and N. Ireland in the afternoon, but eastern Scotland could stay dry.
Temperatures reaching 14-17C across Scotland and N. Ireland, 16-20C across England and Wales.
Fresher for all on Thursday, with sunshine and showers blown through on a brisk westerly breeze. Fewer showers in the afternoon across southern and eastern Britain, frequent and perhaps heavy in the north and west. Temperatures ranging between 15-20C generally, warmer temperatures towards the southeast.
Sunny spells and scattered showers again on Friday, few and far between in the south, most frequent across Scotland.
The weekend sees high pressure build in to settle things down across many parts, so most places dry and bright or sunny on Saturday, with just isolated showers. Sunday more uncertainty, likely most places will start dry and sunny, but thundery showers may push into the southwest and later the south to end the day.
