BBC Weather forecaster Matt Taylor warned of heavy rain and thunderstorms across the UK. He noted that temperatures will remain warm but there will be outbreaks of thunderstorms and hail. He also said that for some areas the wet weather will be avoided.

However, going into the new week, a new wall of rain from the south will engulf much of the UK as it moves northwards.

Mr Taylor said: “The bulk of the showers are in the south.

“You will notice there are some big gaps around, maybe a rumble of thunder just close to the south east corner for the next few hours.

“But thunder won’t really be coming till later.

“It is all drifting its way northwards, there will be rain on and off and then developing brighter skies around southern areas.

“Notice throughout the afternoon we start to see the showers develop across the northern parts of the country.

“Parts of Scotland, Northern Ireland and northern England where we could see the most intense of the downpours later, heavy with rain and thunder.”

The BBC Weather forecaster noted that there will be pockets of the UK that avoid the rain altogether.

On Sunday temperatures will remain relatively warm with a low of 16C in Aberdeen and a high of 21 in Glasgow.

For the rest of the country, temperatures are expected to stay between 17 and 20 degrees.

On the new week, Mr Taylor said: “As we start the week, if you are out camping, especially during the first half of the week, this is not the sort of chart you want to see.

“There will be a deep area of low pressure and we are seeing it push northwards and eastwards through the country.
