UK weather: Storm Jorge to lash flood-hit communities with 70mph winds and rain

Storm Jorge is expected to unleash more heavy rain on the UK’s already flood-hit communities and bring strong winds over the weekend.

The Met Office has issued warnings for 70mph winds and rainfall of up to 80mm as the storm arrives on Friday.

The warnings for rain are in place from Friday morning until Saturday morning in Northern Ireland, Wales, northwest England and southwest England.

Warnings for wind are then in place from midday Saturday until midday Sunday across most of England, Northern Ireland and Wales, as well as southwest Scotland.

The deluge will likely bring more misery for residents in areas already affected by flooding.

UK weather forecast: Britain to enjoy 20C sunshine this weekend after cold snap
Temperatures will begin to rise on Friday before peaking on Sunday

But there will be a mixed picture across the country, with the majority of the sunshine in the east, while the west will see varying amounts of cloud – although it should still feel warm here.

The warm spell will be short-lived, however, as temperatures begin to drop again as soon as Monday.

UK weather: Britain to enjoy sunny Saturday before sharp drop in temperatures
Dominic Raab says people must remember to follow lockdown rules despite warm weather

The UK can expect to enjoy a sunny Saturday before a sharp drop in temperatures on the final day of the bank holiday weekend.

People will be able to enjoy the warm weather – with forecasters predicting 24C in Manchester and potentially even 26C in London – on their daily walks while the country faces another weekend in lockdown during the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the weather looks set to get colder after the sunny start.

“There will be a marked contraction on Sunday with temperatures, tumbling down by 10C or more,” John Griffiths from the Met Office told The Independent.

UK weather: Temperatures to soar in second half of week after mixed spell
Met Office predicts that parts of south-east could reach 36C on Friday

Temperatures will soar into the mid-30s later this week after several days of mixed weather, the Met Office has said.

The national weather service predicts that the south-east could experience highs of 36C on Friday, caused by the arrival of warm air from the continent.

However, conditions will be much cooler at the start of the week, with lots of rain scheduled to fall in the north-west of the UK.

UK weather forecast: Blistering heatwave looms as authorities urge beachgoers to follow safety advice
Met Office issues heatwave warning as temperatures to reach 37C

An amber heatwave warning has been issued by the Met Office for this weekend, meaning there is a 90 per cent probability of heat-health criteria bring met between Thursday and Sunday as temperatures are expected to reach 37C in some areas.

Friday is expected to be particularly scorching, with temperatures “widely reaching 30C or higher in central, southern and some northern parts of England”, said Met Office meteorologist Dan Suri.

The very hot conditions are expected to last in the southeast of England until at least Monday, possibly even Tuesday, with temperatures hovering between low to mid-30C from Saturday onwards, said the Met Office.

Councils across the country jointly issued a plea for members of the public to maintain social distancing and keep an eye on vulnerable or elderly family and friends during the heatwave.

UK weather: heatwave to continue before 'severe thunderstorms' roll in

Many Britons are set to bask in another hot day, with temperatures well above 30C.

The mercury looks set to reach as high as 35C on Sunday – with Kent, Sussex and parts of London being the most likely to see the warmest temperatures, according to Met Office forecaster Craig Snell.

The Met Office has also warned that “severe thunderstorms” are likely early next week.

Yellow thunderstorm warnings for all parts of the UK have been issued for Monday through to Wednesday. The warning states: “Some places are likely to see severe thunderstorms early next week – but there is significant uncertainty in location and timing.”

UK weather: a month's rain could fall in two hours as heatwave breaks
Fears of flash flooding in parts of country, while experts warn extreme heat could become the norm

Over a month’s worth of rain could fall within two hours on parts of Britain this week, causing flash flooding, while an ongoing heatwave is set to break records.

Yellow thunderstorm warnings are in place across the country between Monday and Thursday, with the Met Office saying areas affected by potential severe thunderstorms could see “torrential downpours”.

Meanwhile, it added, the country would probably face three days in a row of 35C temperatures – among the longest periods of such heat recorded in the UK.

The phenomenon has occurred three times before – twice during the 1976 heatwave, where three consecutive days of 35C heat were recorded in both June and July, and in August 1990.
