Heatwave To End Across UK With Thunderstorms And Heavy Rain Forecast
The good weather that we've been having could be about to break in relatively dramatic fashion with electrical storms and heavy rain.
Admit it. For once, we've been quite lucky with the weather recently. It's been warm and sunny for quite a while now and we should just be happy about that.
With that in mind, it's about to take a pretty drastic turn for the worst, but hopefully it will only be a blip.
Weather forecasters are saying that the UK is about to have to contend with some pretty extreme rain over the next couple of days before a heatwave follows up at the end of next week.
In the North East of England it's pretty likely that there will be some impressive thunder and lightning storms, according to Chronicle Live reports.
This is hot on the heels of Storm Hector, which has brought some huge gusts of wind and biblical bouts of rain to much of the United Kingdom.
As per usual, the north of England is going to get the worst of the rain and overcast weather, with the south getting away with some sunshine.

It should only be a temporary thing though as the Met Office has predicted a better forecast by the start of next week.
Their assessment of Monday to Wednesday says: "The Northwestern half of the UK will be windy on Monday, and sometimes cloudy and damp over the following days. Southeastern areas will stay dry and bright, becoming increasingly warm."
The Weather Channel's Hannah Findley said: "It's a complex picture for next week, but overall temperatures will be slightly above normal and total rainfall will be below normal, except in the north-west.
"For Monday and Tuesday, another area of low pressure will bring moderate winds and showers to the north. But high pressure building into the south will bring more settled conditions.
"A cold front will sweep mostly light rain and cloud across the country from the north-west on Wednesday, mainly affecting the north-western half of the country.
"Temperatures also rising, with 18-24C expected across the south and between 15-20C in the north."
There you have it - it's going to get wet and windy, possibly even thunder and lightning, but once that has exhausted itself we should be in for a bit of a mini-heatwave as the week progresses.
Just in time for you to spend all day in work sat at a desk. Lucky us.
