It was a very wet and stormy week on Merseyside during the last week.

Heavy rain and thunderstorms brought flooding to some areas damaging homes and businesses, lightning even struck a house on Wirral.

So when is the cooler wetter weather going to stop and when are we going to see a return of the hot temperatures we saw at the start of last week.

Well, we definitely won’t see a return of the 27C temperatures this week, in fact, its going to be mostly wet with the chance of some brightness and temperatures will be around 16C.

The Met Office long range forecast even points out that the following week could be similar and it wouldn’t surprise us if we see even more severe weather warnings over the next week or so.

The forecast reads: Generally unsettled for most parts through Thursday and Friday, with fairly frequent showers, heavy and thundery at times.

There will be some drier and brighter weather too, which should become more prevalent towards the weekend.

Into the following week, unsettled and breezier conditions looks to return. Bands of cloud and rain are expected to move across the UK, interspersed with brighter, showery conditions.

The most frequent spells of rain are likely across the north, whilst the south should see more in the way of drier weather.

Temperatures will generally be near average, but perhaps on the cool side at first, and turning locally warm in sunnier spells.
