Britain is set for more wet weather this week, with thunderstorms rolling onto the south coast causing commuting havoc and temperatures forecast in the single figures.
The Met Office said August’s unusually wet weather is caused by the jet stream getting “stuck” over the UK, opening Britain up to rain and wind from the Atlantic Ocean.
This morning will see thunderstorms hit south east England from the Channel, with rain and lightning in Sussex and Kent.
Showers will dominate the weather for the next week, with showers forecast for Wednesday, Friday and the weekend.
The latest wet weather comes after yellow weather warnings were issued by the Met Office for wind and rain across most of the UK on Friday and Saturday.
