Speaking to BBC News, weather presenter Darren Bett warned of a weather front that is set to hit northern areas of the UK and expected to stay until the end of the week. He said there will be sunshine in areas but the strong winds will make it feel much cooler. Wednesday will see highs of 21C before dropping as we head towards the weekend.
Mr Bett said: “For many areas it is going to be a case of some sunshine, but some heavy, potentially thundery downpours and a stronger wind as well.”
He added how there is an amber rain warning in place in North Easter Scotland which is set to see an astonishing 90ml of rainfall by the end of Wednesday which is expected to cause flash flooding.
The forecaster added: “Showers coming in from the west, those will push their way eastwards through the day, they could be heavy rain and some thunder in there as well.
“Some sunshine away from the showers but they are moving on a little bit more quickly today because of that breeze.”
