UK weather forecast: Tropical storm Debby to spark HELL WEEK of torrential RAIN and gales

According to the Reuters, the remains of ‘Storm Debby’would likely to arrive from the Atlantic to the country until the end of this weekend.

Temperatures will widely nudge back into the 30Cs with the all-time record of 38.5C (101.3F) still under threat, they say.

Met Office meteorologist, Becky Mitchell “warned many places will see heavy rain this weekend after a brief” respite on Saturday morning. Heavy rain and gales threaten floods in parts through the following days as a barrage of storm systems tear in from the west. However, the mercury will rocket again next weekend with a blistering heatwave likely to see out summer, according to some forecasters.

“Later in the day the weather will be influenced by the remains of Tropical Storm Debby, air associated with this storm will get caught up with a low-pressure system bringing higher temperatures and some heavier rain and wind.

“Much of the UK will see outbreaks of heavy rain on Sunday and it will continue to be breezy, it is a generally unsettled picture through next week.

“People with outdoor plans should perhaps try to squeeze them in on Saturday morning.”

She said: “There are some models pointing towards an increased chance of more settled, sunnier weather towards the end of next weekend.

“We are also seeing signs of a more prolonged spell of settled weather and there is a chance that all of the UK could see more in the way of sunshine and warm temperatures towards the end of the month.”

Weather models show the risk of storms will continue across much of the country through to the middle of August.

After weeks of near-drought heatwave conditions the Environment Agency, today issued flood alerts ahead of heavy downpours.

It warned rainfall will coincide with high tides this weekend bringing the risk of travel disruption and damage to homes.

Scotland, Wales and northern England will be first in the firing line for the deluge this weekend, according to Weather Company forecaster Amy Hodgson.

Southern and southeastern regions will turn wetter and more unsettled on Sunday and into Monday, she added.

She said: “The best of any sunny spells will be across the far southeast on Saturday.

“It will be a blustery day with moderate southeasterly winds across western coasts.

Piers Corbyn, a forecaster for WeatherAction, warned to brace for ‘major thunderstorms’ this weekend and into next week.

He said: “It is looking very windy with the risk of gales in parts of the country.“From the middle of the month, there are signs of the weather turning again with mostly fine, dry and hot conditions forecast”.
