Thunder is expected to hit the UK Sunday with ‘any part’ of the UK likely to see a storm
MILLIONS of staycations will be ruined by another week of school holiday washouts and woeful temperatures – as summer “tanks” at the “worst possible time.”
The Met Office has forecast heavy showers for tomorrow, with much more of the same to follow on Monday and Tuesday.
The UK will be battered by swathes of thundery storms this weekend as the British summer remains a damp washout.
Most parts of Britain will be unsettled with showers and longer spells of rain breaking up the short sunny intervals with the north and Scotland seeing temperatures drop to a chilly 14 degrees.
On Sunday, thunder will hit the UK with the Met Office warning that “any part of the UK” is likely to see storms.
It comes as blustery showers will continue across Scotland and Northern Ireland this evening while strong winds and heavy rain will affect other parts in the north.
They will be followed by a midweek soaking and gales following.
Highs of just 16C are expected for many.
After a sizzling start, summer has “tanked” at the “worst possible time,” said The Weather Outlook.
High-altitude 160mph Atlantic jet stream winds just west of Britain are bringing low pressure, wrecking millions of UK holidays in the busiest UK tourism weeks of the year.
Met Office forecaster Emma Salter said: “The weather is disappointing for the end of July and school holidays.
“Monday and Tuesday will be breezy with showers, with a wet spell UK-wide arriving later on Wednesday.”
The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “After a super first half of summer for the South and Midlands, summer has tanked at the worst possible time – in the middle of the busiest holiday weeks of the year.”

The Met Office said: “An unusually strong jet stream is keeping it changeable and cool.”
The start to summer was the hottest since 1976, and second hottest for a century.
June was England’s second hottest since 1910, with a 15.9C average temperature bettered only by June 1976’s record 16.4C, Met Office figures showed.
And July 1-21 was 1.5C hotter than normal in central England, Met Office data revealed.
Meanwhile, a new heatwave is set to grip Spain with temperatures rocketing into the 40s across southern areas of the country.
Earlier this month, Spain was placed on alert because of record temperatures with the village of Andujar, in southern Andalusia, enduring a high of 46.9C (116.4F).
