BRITAIN is set to be soaked by rain, thunder & FLOODING this week in a dramatic change in conditions after a blistering mid-June heatwave.

The nation is set for yet more washouts amid yellow weather warnings issued for heavy rain and flooding.

BBC Weather's Chris Fawkes said: “We get to endure an area of low pressure that has been with us today and will be with us for the rest of the week bringing rain or showers in the forecast everyday.

“We start off on Wednesday morning with a band of rain across east Scotland, eastern areas of England, clearing quite quickly and then essentially when that has gone it is a day of sunshine and showers," said Mr Fawkes.

"Heavy showers and thunderstorms for Scotland and some slow moving storms lining up along south west England, so there will be a few areas here that will see shower, after shower, after shower.

It comes after the Met Office issued a yellow warning for rain for the majority of Scotland on Tuesday.

      Make sure to protect yourself from UV rays this summer

      As the summer reaches its peak, and temperatures rise, as do the levels of UV across the country.

      UV can be highly damaging to your skin, leading to sped up ageing and in serious cases, caner.

      So, here are some top tips from the CDC to avoid sun damage this summer:

      • Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours.
      • Wear clothes that cover your arms and legs.
      • Consider options to protect your children.
      • Wear a wide brim hat to shade your face, head, ears, and neck.
      • Wear wraparound sunglasses that block both UVA and UVB rays.
      • Use sunscreen with sun protection factor (SPF) 15 or higher, for both UVA and UVB protection.
      • Avoid indoor tanning. Indoor tanning is particularly dangerous for younger users; people who begin indoor tanning during adolescence or early adulthood have a higher risk of developing melanoma.

        Scotland to be battered with a DELUGE of rain today

        According to the Met Office, Scotland is at risk of flooding after a barrage of rain and thunder hits the country.

        The Met Office has issued a Yellow Weather Warning in response to this dangerous weather.

        A look at July’s weather

        What can Brits expect from mid to late July?

        Well, the Met Office has revealed its forecast, and its mixed news.

        Brits should expect warm, summery weather, but could also see spells of rain hit the country.

        “There is a good chance of more settled conditions prevailing through the middle and later parts of July, although some northern areas may see spells of rain or showers at times, especially earlier in the period.

        “These spells could extend across the country at times, but in general the south will see the best of the settled conditions. Temperatures are likely to be close to or a little above average initially but trending towards widely warm conditions later, especially across the south.”

        What to expect in London later this week

        The Met Office has revealed the forecast Londoners can expect as the week goes on.

        “Cloudier Wednesday as a slow-moving band of showery rain pushes east.

        “More unsettled Thursday with showers, perhaps turning heavy and thundery early on. Drier and brighter Friday. Feeling warm.”

          Tonight's forecast

          Tonight will see rain in western Britain spread to the east, leaving a mix of clear spells and scattered showers behind, the BBC reported.

          While south-eastern England, Northern Ireland and the far north of Scotland will avoid the worst of the rain.

          Wednesday will have variable cloud, sunny spells and scattered, heavy showers, these merging into longer spells of rain at times.

          30C scorcher is just days away

          Wednesday and Thursday could see the mercury sizzle to these sweltering climes, with the south east of England expected to enjoy the best of it, according to forecasters WXCharts.

          Meanwhile The Mirror reported that by the weekend, a high pressure system pushing up from the south will see temperatures boil to the mid-20s in parts of the country.

          As for Tuesday, unsettled weather is also expected outside of Scotland.

          The northwest of England will see cloud and outbreaks of rain, some of which will be heavy, which are expected to dampen spirits on Tuesday.

          This will then move slowly to other western areas throughout the day bringing persistent rain.

          Northern Ireland is expected to have a wet and windy start to Tuesday but as the night draws in this will clear and dry up.

          It will be dry elsewhere and south-eastern areas will be treated to plenty of sunshine and breezy conditions.
