Britain to see ‘improving weather picture’ this week following weekend washout
July 24, 2023
Britain is set to see an "improving weather picture" this week following a weekend washout.
According to the Met Office, the early rain and thundery spells would make way for widespread sunshine and showers, with Tuesday (July 25) and Friday (July 28) being the best days weather wise.
Dan Stroud, meteorologist at the Met Office, said: “We’ve got a band of rain clearing southwards tomorrow.

“There are likely to be some heavy, potentially thundery bursts across the south and south-east during the course of the morning, but sunny spells and showers already around elsewhere will push right across the whole country during the course of the afternoon, so it is an improving picture.
“Probably the better days of the week are going to be Tuesday and Friday, again with a focus on sunshine and showers.
“We have a band of cloud and rain quickly moving in from the south and west on Wednesday.
"There is a risk of some coastal gales developing across parts of Devon and Cornwall into Thursday, so it’s looking like a rather unsettled middle chunk of the week.”
He added that temperatures will be slightly below average for the period and “a little bit on the cool side”.
This comes after a very wet weekend, particularly in northern England and Wales, which saw rain and flood warnings issued.
