Its unpredictable movements will affect the weather in the UK this week, giving a “week of two halves” with both heavy downpours and hotter temperatures. Tonight and tomorrow, most of the country will be battered with torrential rain and 60mph winds. But from Thursday Britain could be basking in warmer weather, with potential highs of 21C.

Netweather forecaster Jo Farrow said: “Blustery showers for some today (Monday), a low pressure for Tuesday with wind and rain particularly for eastern England into Wednesday.

“Then watching out for the heavy rain from ex-Sam over NW parts of the UK later this week but fine, warm and settled away to the south of that front.”
