The weather experts have predicted breezy weather for Wednesday and Thursday as the low-pressure system moves northwards. The temperature levels during the day are likely to oscillate between 20-24C.

Nick Miller, a meteorologist with BBC Weather, said: “After overnight rain and thunderstorms, Wednesday morning has a lot of dry weather and showers clearing northern Scotland.

“Wednesday ends with more wet weather pushing eastwards and some intense thundery downpours in places that could be torrential thunderstorms for a time overnight.

“We are in between weather systems again on Thursday. So a lot of fine weather around there, quite breezy with some showers around northern Scotland, slight chances of showers in the far south-east of England.”

It comes after the UK has enjoyed some hot spells this spring, recording its hottest day of the year so far on Tuesday after temperatures in the South East peaked at 27.5C.

The highest temperature was recorded at Heathrow, according to the Met Office.

It also means that the UK was warmer than some popular holiday destinations like Santorini in Greece, which only saw 26C (78.8F) on Tuesday.

The Met Office in its statement said: “Early rain across Scotland clearing on Wednesday. Many parts fine, warm in the southeast.

“Rain developing over Northern Ireland, Wales and southern England later, thundery in the southeast. Rain then moving northeast.”

According to experts, any thundery rain clearing the north and east early Thursday, then it’s looking a mostly dry and bright day as high pressure builds in, though a few showers possible in the northwest, not as warm as previous days, but pleasant enough in the sunshine.

Nick Finnis from stated: “Looking cloudy and breezy with some outbreaks of rain spreading in from the west for Scotland on Friday, dry and sunny for England and Wales, though some thundery showers may clip the southeast later in the day, but uncertainty of this.”

Meanwhile, the Met Office has issued a Flood alert for Wales tonight.

It said: “Much of the west and north will experience rain this evening.

“This is expected to cause flooding on the Carmarthenshire Coast of Wales.
