Brits to soak in rain every day for a MONTH as non-stop showers forecasted

Rain is forecasted in parts of the UK every day for the next two weeks, according to WXCharts’ forecast maps.

And the Met Office’s long range forecast suggests the weather misery could last throughout the entirety of August.

The nation is already being pummelled by heavy rain, thunder and lightning today amid three days of storms.

Yellow warnings are still in place for much of England tomorrow as the heavy thundery showers continue.

But the latest forecast maps show the wet weather is set to batter Britain every day for the next fortnight – at least.

The maps on WXCharts show relentless bands of low pressure pushing in from the Atlantic and dumping rain on the UK.

This is the same pattern every day until Thursday, August 14 when the forecast ends.

But the Met Office’s forecast for Wednesday August, 14 to Wednesday, August 28, warns: “Although confidence is low throughout this period, the middle of August will probably start with unsettled conditions, with low pressure likely to be centred just to the west of the UK.

“This pattern would bring a predominately south to southwesterly airflow, which as well as bringing periods of showers or longer spells of rain, would generally lead to above average temperatures.

“Into the second half of August, low pressure will probably move to lie the northeast of the UK, with perhaps higher pressure towards the southwest of the country.

“This pattern would lead to a cooler and showery west to northwesterly flow, with the wettest conditions in the north and west, although the far southwest may have some drier and slightly warmer weather at times.”

In its forecast for this Sunday, through until Tuesday, August 13, it states: “On Sunday early outbreaks of rain in the west will turn more showery and spread erratically eastwards through the day, with some heavy and thundery showers by the afternoon.

“Breezy in the west, with temperatures generally near normal. Through the following week, low pressure is likely to be located just to the west of the UK.

“This would bring west to southwesterly winds across the majority of the UK, but with the potential for a south to southeasterly flow across the far north of the country.

“This pattern would bring occasional spells of rain, which could be heavy at times, into western parts, with daytime showers breaking out more generally elsewhere.

“Temperatures will mostly be above average, with warm or very warm conditions possible across the south.”

Despite the rain, the warm temperatures – in the mid 20Cs – look set to continue.

But the weather misery comes after a glorious hot, dry spell which left Brits baking in a 30C+ heatwave.

The scorching weather saw the country bake in its hottest day ever on record last Thursday – with 38.7C being recorded in Cambridge, 0.2C higher than the previous record of 38.5C set in Kent in 2003.
