The UK should return to summer temperatures within days, according to the latest BBC weather forecast. BBC meteorologist Stav Danos told BBC Breakfast viewers that parts of the country will see some “sunnier, drier, and warmer weather” from Tuesday. The latest BBC temperature forecast saw London reach at least 23C on Wednesday.

However, before then, Mr Danos warned that the “very unsettled August weather continues into this weekend”.

The Met Office has warned that heavy downpours and thunderstorms could cause flash flooding across parts of the UK today.

The BBC meteorologist explained: “The low pressure nearby will generate further showers and like Friday we could see some thunderstorms which could lead to some localised flooding.

“There will be some good spells of sunshine in between especially across some southern areas.”

He continued: “We will have showers from the word go today, pretty much anywhere in the country.

“This will drift its way eastwards as the day moves on, and there could be some torrential downpours in places.

“Temperatures will be disappointing for this time of year, but in the sunny spells in the south-east, we could make 20C.

“On Sunday, the rain will be concentrated to the northern and western areas of the country, and we could see some sunnier, drier weather for Wales and central and southern England.

“That could bump up temperatures to 21C.

“On Monday, into next week, the low pressure continues to weaken and as we head on into Tuesday we have this bump of high pressure, and that could settle things down.

“We will have most of the showers across the new week across northern and western areas, with a greater chance of seeing some sunnier, drier, and warmer weather in the south and east.”

The Met Office has issued yellow warnings for thunderstorms across much of Scotland, Northern Ireland, northern England and north Wales until the end of Saturday.

Forecasters have warned that as much as 100mm (4in) of rain could fall in some places, with the potential for between 20 and 30mm in the space of an hour.

The Met Office spokesperson Grahame Madge said: “We do have a very unsettled weekend in prospect, with a lot of it covered by a thunderstorm and rain warnings.

“We have got an area of low pressure which will be milling around over the UK, bringing rain to quite a large part. So I think everywhere can expect to see quite heavy showers.

“We know the footprint of where we think the heaviest rainfall will be, but it’s like a boiling saucepan: you will get bubbles coming up, and trying to pinpoint where the next bubble will be is virtually impossible.”
