THUNDERSTORMS and heavy rain will soak Britain tomorrow – but we’ll still be basking in 23C heat.

Forecasters have warned of a “blanket of thick cloud and persistent rain” for much of the UK after a wet start to the day tomorrow.

The Met Office said the wet weather won’t be around for long in England and Wales, but heavy showers will continue into Wednesday in Northern Ireland and Scotland.

It will be a wet rush hour on Tuesday morning but a fresh start for much of the country, with highs of 13C in Plymouth and 12C in Hull.

By mid morning there will be heavy rainfall across the UK, but parts of Eastern England will stay fairly humid and enjoy temperatures of around 22 or 23C.

South West England and parts of Wales will see thunderstorms by late afternoon and Kent could see storms around rush hour.

There will be some sun in the Midlands and Manchester but for most of the North, Northern Ireland and Scotland it’s wet weather all around.

Aidan McGivern from the Met office said: “A blanket of thick cloud and persistent rain are starting to come down as we end Tuesday. It’s horrible conditions out there.”

Much of England and Wales will begin to dry up into Wednesday morning, but the rest of the UK can expect heavy showers and strong breeze.

It comes after the UK was hotter than Barcelona, Rome and Saint Tropez yesterday on the year’s warmest weekend so far.

The Sunday scorcher hit a high of 84.2F (29C) in Weybourne, Norfolk, while the three foreign hotspots topped out at 78.8F (26C).

But a man in his 60s died after getting into trouble diving off the Devon coast. He was pulled from the sea at Oddicombe beach near Torquay.

Meanwhile, two girls aged seven and nine were rescued by lifeboat after being swept out to sea in a giant inflatable swan off Minehead, Somerset.
