As expected, the rains arrived across the Southeast with some decent thunderstorms producing local downpours, gusty winds and decent lightning displays.

The good news is that Monday looks drier, brighter and a little warmer as there is a break between systems tomorrow. The bad news is that this dry, sunny slot is short lived as more rain arrives during Tuesday but it looks likely that the worst of this wet weather will hit but leave fairly soon over London as the worst of the weather impacts areas further north. Backside showers however can’t be ruled out following the initial rains.

By Wednesday, though remaining unsettled with plenty of wet weather streaming in from the west over Ireland, northern England and Scotland, a southwest wind will alllow some more significant warming down across London with highs rebounding towards the mid-20s.
