UK weather forecast: Britain set for Sunday washout as torrential rain strikes

According to the Met Office weather forecast, the north and northeast will start off wet with the rain spreading throughout England. Temperatures are expected to be a little higher than on Saturday, however. A Met Office meteorologist explained: “Further north and west apart from a few showers it’s looking largely dry with some bright, sunny spells.

“Temperatures should be a little bit higher than on Saturday and with lighter winds too it is set to feel a little bit warmer as we go through the end of the day.

“There’ll still be some cloud and outbreaks of rain around but the cloud will generally break up and things should turn drier too looking ahead to the new working week.”

Monday is forecast to be “largely dry” but rain is forecast to come in from the northwest on Tuesday.

This rain could get heavy on Wednesday and Thursday.

Earlier this week, Prime Minister Boris Johnson urged Britons not to move gatherings indoors when rainier weather hits.

Mr Johnson said this would break lockdown rules.

He added it would “undermine and reverse all the progress that we’ve made together”.

Mr Johnson explained: “Some of you may be tempted to move the gatherings you’ve been enjoying outdoors indoors out of the rain.

“I really urge you: don’t do that.

“The risks of passing on the virus are significantly higher indoors which is why gatherings inside other people’s homes are still prohibited.”

When meeting outdoors, social distancing guidelines still apply.

You are advised to keep a two-metre distance from others.
