Merseyside faces a wet start to July


The last week of June will be a wet week and as we head into July the wet theme is set to continue.

Heavy showers will be frequent throughout this week with the chance of some rumbles of thunder at times.

However, there will be some brighter spells at times and temperatures are expected to stay above 15C.

The Met Office forecast says: The changeable and often unsettled weather is likely to continue across most parts.

Bands of rain are expected to push eastwards across the country, these interspersed with drier and brighter periods, but also some showers, perhaps some heavy ones at times.

Temperatures on the whole are expected to be near, or somewhat below average for the time of year, but feeling cool more generally in the northwest in any wetter and winder spells.

Conversely, it will feel warm in any drier and sunnier periods, especially in the south and east.
