MeteoGroup forecast daily soakings in Scotland until at least Thursday

The Met Office forecast “disappointing” weather with heavy showers for Scotland tomorrow, showers Monday and Tuesday followed by a midweek soaking and gales.

Scotland’s summer is “tanking” at the “worst possible time” as the end of Scottish school holidays and the start of English schools’ break coincides, The Weather Outlook said.

High-altitude 160mph Atlantic jet stream winds just west of Britain are bringing low pressure, wrecking Scottish holidays in Scotland’s busiest tourism weeks of the year.


Met Office forecaster Emma Salter said: “The weather is disappointing for the end of July and school holidays.

“Monday and Tuesday will be breezy with showers, with a wet spell UK-wide arriving later on Wednesday.”

The Weather Outlook forecaster Brian Gaze said: “Summer certainly hasn’t been great in Scotland – and summer is now tanking at the worst possible time, in the middle of the busiest holiday weeks of the year.”

The Met Office said: “An unusually strong jet stream is keeping it changeable and cool.”
