BBC Weather’s Carol Kirkwood also predicted temperatures ranging from 15c to 30c across the UK. Ms Kirkwood predicted outbreaks of thunderstorms in Scotland and the North West of England. Cooler conditions are expected at night this week, as temperatures dip slightly. And due to the incoming downpour, the Met Office has put out three weather yellow weather warnings out for flash floods.
Ms Kirkwood said: “Some of us are going to see some rain today, some of us have it at the moment.
“And as we go through this week, it’s going to be cooler than last week by quite a lot actually.
“There will be some thunderstorms in the forecast, some already starting with those thunderstorms.
“Especially coming out of this band of rain in Scotland, we’ve got a couple across North West England.

“Some of us will stay bone dry, and tonight well, we’re looking at overnight lows within 11 and 13, so still quite humid as we push down towards the South.”
