Further deluges in parts of the UK

[Updated 07:20 10/06/2019]

Lightning

The last 24 hours have brought heavy rain and thunderstorms to parts of the UK. The very unsettled weather continues in the short term as an area of low pressure slowly edges northwards. Further large rain totals are likely in places and there is a risk of flooding. In the medium term a gradual improvement is expected....READ IN FULL

Tuesday starts with heavy rain in central and northern England, Wales and parts of the southwest. To the southeast the rain is patchier and to north it is mainly dry. During the day the main area of wet weather doesn't move much and in places some very large rain totals will be recorded. To the south a few brighter spells develop but there is a risk of heavy and thundery showers. Scotland and Northern Ireland have a mix of sunny spells and showers.

It will be another very cool day in much of the country with temperatures ranging from 10C (50F) to 14C (57F). The exception is the south eastern corner where 21C (70F) is possible due to the combination of warmer air feeding in from the continent and cloud breaks. See the rain radar for the latest view.

Summer forecast Issued 01/06/2019


Tomorrow the main band of rain becomes fragmented and moves away westwards across Northern Ireland. Further heavy and showery outbreaks of rain move in from the east and affect much of the country. There is the potential for downpours in places which could lead to localised flooding and difficult driving conditions. Temperatures should generally be a little higher than today's.

Unsettled spell possibly moderates

The unsettled theme continues on Thursday. An area of low pressure will be sitting over the UK and it brings the likelihood of further heavy wet weather. There should be some drier and brighter intervals too. The best of them may be in the south and north of the UK. Little changes on Friday.

The latest guidance for the weekend is suggesting a mixed picture. A ridge of high pressure probably starts trying to build over the south with low pressure becoming centred further north. The exact positioning of the the two will determine the outcome. The chance of drier and brighter period should increase in the south.
