Leon Brown, forecaster for The Weather Channel UK, said: “Early in the week we will have an area of low pressure sitting over the UK becoming quite unstable with some slow-moving and heavy showers likely on Tuesday.
“There will be hail and thunder too and the potential for localised flash floods.
“Towards the end of the week it looks like another area of low pressure will dive southwards from Iceland, so it’s a cool and showery prospect for the weekend.”
The weekend is set to be mostly cloudy looking at current forecasts.
Saturday will be the best day of the weekend as it’s meant to stay dry. Light rain is expected on Sunday with maximum temperatures all weekend feeling a chilly 13C.
