More rain is forecast for this week with an INCH of rain set to fall tomorrow – but balmy weather will return in August
BRITAIN faces a yo-yo summer of sizzling temperatures mixed with heavy downpours.
The first week of the summer school holidays may have started with fine weather for many – but it’s only going to do downhill.
More rain is forecast this week with more than an inch expected to fall in 12 hours tomorrow.
But high pressure will bring warmer weather for August.
It follows a record-breaking June heatwave, which saw temperatures peak at 93F (33.8C).
Met Office forecaster Oli Claydon said: “We’ll rarely ever see non-stop hot weather.”
But before we enjoy the return of balmy weather, grey skies and chilly showers are expected to swoop in from the Atlantic tomorrow.
Heavy downpours are forecast in some parts of the country as temperatures drop much lower compared to just a few weeks ago.
Low pressure lurking in the Atlantic will pull chilly winds in from the north and put the entire country at risk of heavy rain.
The Met Office said a largely “disappointing” week awaits families as the long summer break stretches in front of them.
Forecaster Steven Keates said: “We are looking at a week of changeable weather, it is going to be a bit disappointing especially now people are just starting on their holidays.
“It’s not a complete washout and most places will get some reasonable weather at times, but there will be rain around so have alternative plans on the back burner.
Temperatures will hover between 23C and 24C widely over the next two days before dipping towards the weekend.
Most places apart from the southeast will struggle to see anything higher than around 20C or 21C by Friday.

He said: “Temperatures are not going to win any awards this week.
“Rain will move eastwards through the day on Wednesday, some of this will be heavy and persistent and it will feel cool in these showers.
“Thursday will bring further showers and some longer spells of rain, the north will be quite unsettled with better weather further south.
“As one depression clears on Friday and other shows its hand bringing unsettled conditions particularly to the west, elsewhere could see a reasonable day.”
It comes as it was revealed Britain faces an increased risk of “unprecedented” winter downpours like those that caused extensive flooding in 2014.
A Met Office study suggests there’s now a one in three chance of monthly rainfall records being broken in England and Wales in winter with global warming cited as one reason behind it.
