The end of this week will see Britain battered by violent thunderstorms and torrential rain, according to the latest BBC weather forecast. However, the forecast also showed one region will manage to avoid the bad weather and drop in temperatures. The latest weather chart shows that southern England will stay relatively dry throughout Thursday and Friday and see temperatures reach up to 24C.
BBC meteorologist Matt Taylor told BBC Breakfast this morning that the majority of Britons will have to “prepare for windier and wetter weather to return to our shores”.
He explained: “This weather is all due to this cloud forming across the Atlantic Ocean starting to creep towards us.
“We will start to see some heavy and thundery showers break out throughout this afternoon particularly across the Midlands and southern England.
“They could come with torrential downpours. However, there is sunshine out there today, and some of us will stay dry throughout today.”

He continued: “The warmest in between showers will be in southern England with highs of 21C while temperatures drop in Scotland to 13C.
“There will be longer spells of rain heading in overnight into Northern Ireland and western Scotland as we head into tomorrow.
“Temperatures should stay in double figures on Friday, but there will be relentless rain across the Highlands and northern Scotland.
“We will also see very heavy rain around the Lake District and Snowdonia. The driest areas against will be southern England and London, where temperatures will stay at 21C.”
The wet weather will likely continue for the rest of the week, sparking a weekend washout on the day when pubs, bars and restaurants are set to reopen.
This could mean indoor venues will struggle to implement social distancing measures as people ditch beer gardens and outdoor spaces to move out of the rain.
The Met Office warned that it will remain humid across the country, with maximum temperatures of 24C in London and the South East.

Central and northern parts of England will reach highs of 20C due to a low-pressure weather system near the UK.
This comes after Sunday was confirmed the wettest June day on record, according to the Met Office.
There was 212.8mm (8.37in) of rain at Honister Pass in the Lake District, the equivalent of 10 weeks’ rainfall in one day.
Despite the downpours, the Met Office long range reports predict that July will settle with another sweltering heatwave on the cards.
