UK weather latest: Britain faces three days of rain and cold temperatures as Europe goes through severe heatwave – The Independent

A low pressure kink in the jet stream is bringing cold and rain to the UK over the next few days, forecasters say.

The un-seasonally high European temperatures that have warped railway tracks, and sent people diving into fountains to cool off, are nowhere to be found home.  

Wind, frost and temperatures will hit, with temperatures as low as 2C in Scotland overnight.

The Met Office has issued a yellow weather warning for the East Midlands, East of England and London and South East England on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Those regions will see “heavy, slow moving and perhaps thundery” showers, with some areas preparing for two to three hours of heavy rain .

“By Wednesday showers will become confined to the southeast of England as pressure builds from the west, and although quite windy midweek, the northwest of the UK will see some fine weather.”

Thursday and the weekend are likely to be a little drier and brighter, especially across the southern half of the UK.

Europe has been going through an unusual weather patch nicknamed ‘Lucifer’ in reference to its devilishly high temperatures.

Half of Spain was placed under emergency alert at the weekend, while animal rights groups in Serbia asked citizens to leave bowls of water in parks and outside their buildings for stray dogs.

In the UK, “it does look like summer is still on hold,” BBC presenter Stav Danaos said in Weather for the Week Ahead.

“If you’re wondering where our summer’s gone, Europe’s had the lion’s share of it.”
