The Met Office issued several “danger to life” warnings last week as torrential rain, 60mph winds and lightning battered the UK.

Homes were flooded, major train lines were cut off and power cuts sparked carnage as storms wreaked havoc across the nation.

A dam was also left on the brink of collapse in Whaley Bridge, Derbyshire as part of the wall crumbled under the sheer weight of 300 million gallons of water.

But now Brits are facing even more weather chaos as a seven-day washout bears down on the country.

Weather Outlook has warned that “all regions will have showers of longer spells of rain” as relentless bands of wet weather sweeps in from the Atlantic.

The Met Office also forecasts an “unsettled theme” as “low pressure systems affect the UK” with “spells of rain, which could be heavy at times”.

WXCharts’ weather maps show Wednesday, Friday and the following Monday will see the heaviest of the incoming rain.

Meanwhile other days will see widespread scattered shows in a huge contrast to the balmy 36C that kicked off Britain’s summer.

Weather Outlook’s forecast reads: “During Tuesday the showery theme continues. The brightest conditions are likely in the north and east.

“In the south and west cloud builds and there is a risk of more prolonged outbreaks of rain later in the day.

“Temperatures remain on the low side. Overnight and through Wednesday a period of wet weather spreads eastwards across the UK. It will be windy in southern and central counties.

“Through the rest of next week it remains unsettled. All regions have showers or longer spells of rain. There will be drier and brighter periods too with the best of them in the south.”

The Met Office could issue more weather warnings next week, especially for Wednesday when a large low pressure system slams into the country.

The government weather service’s forecast for Tuesday to Thursday reads: “Staying unsettled, with sunny spells and showers on most days.

“Some longer spells of rain are likely on Wednesday, especially in the south. Temperatures staying a little below normal.”

And its outlook for Friday, August 16 to Sunday, August 25 warns: “The unsettled theme looks set to continue, with low pressure systems affecting the UK.

“This is likely to bring spells of rain, which could be heavy at times, especially in the west or northwest.

“These will be interspersed by brighter and showery interludes across the UK. It will be windy too, with gales at times, especially in the north and west.

“Any drier spells are likely to be brief, and will most likely be in the south or southwest.

“Towards the end of the period, there are some signs that longer drier spells may occur, especially in the south.

“Temperatures will often be below normal for the time of year, with some chilly nights at times during any quieter spells.”
