Rain and showers all week

It’s the first week of July and we have another wet week in store. More general rain today and tomorrow. More showery rain from Wednesday onwards, and some of the showers could be heavy and slow moving.

Parts of Lincolnshire and The Wash may start dry this morning but it won’t be long before they see the rain which will cover the rest of the region.

Generally a grey, wet start.

Pulses of rain push west to east, they should not be overly heavy. More light rain and drizzle than anything else.

This afternoon the wet zone edges eastwards and as skies brighten up behind it, that will only serve to kick off some heavier bursts in the West Midlands later, particularly through the sweep from Shropshire to Herefordshire; maybe a few rumbles of thunder here too. 17 or 18c your high, 64f.

Another band of heavy rain moves through on Tuesday, and then we expect more in the way of showers from Wednesday onwards. Breezy start to the week too but winds lightening off by the end of it.

The showers could therefore be heavy, thundery and slow moving at times. The positioning and intensity are totally dependent on the position of low pressure.

There is certainly scope for more rain this week but in any sunny spells, temperatures will reach the high teens / low 20’s Celsius so it should not be a complete washout.
