    Met Office has warned that the UK is bracing itself for more rain as heavy showers and storms make their way across the country.

    Possible storms as the jet stream barrels in from the west bring in ferocious winds and gusty conditions.

    But there is a glimmer of hope on the horizon with warmer temperatures heading our way, with 30C possible, according to one weather expert.

    Weather expert Phil Morrish told Daily Express: "There will be another seven to 10 days of this unsettled weather as the jet stream comes in from the west giving us periods of rain and showers and moderate temperatures of 20C in the south and 17 to 18C in the north.

    "August 7-14 looks warmer with sunnier conditions as the jet stream moves north, allowing high pressure from the south to build up."

    Between August 10-14, there will be normal temperatures of 20 – 25C in the south.

    And in the third week of August, Brits will see more warmth, 25C to perhaps 30C if high pressure takes hold.

    He added: "There'll be one more week of unsettled conditions, then becoming more settled. It's getting better after six weeks of unsettled weather. By the third week of August, the whole country will be more settled."

    He added next week will see storms in various places due to instability in the air, with possible storms at the end of August caused if the heat arrives "full-on".

    Weather maps for the coming days reveal heavy rain over much of the country and risk of storms in the east on Monday.

    Meanwhile, the Met Office's outlook for August says the first to tenth is likely to start "generally unsettled" with showers and outbreaks of rain perhaps turning heavy and thundery at times.

    It adds: "Changeable conditions are expected to continue through the week with a mixture of sunshine and showers, as well as spells of rain across the UK.

    "The wettest conditions are likely to be across the west, while the southeast is likely to see the best of any drier interludes."

    The weather is likely to remain fairly changeable for the most part through mid to late August, according to the Met Office.
