UK weather: Torrential rains and thunderstorms ahead as Met Office warning extends
The Met Office has extended weather warnings for torrential downpours and thunderstorms overnight.
A yellow weather warning for torrential rains is currently in place from midnight to 3 a.m. tomorrow – with a risk of localized flooding.
Forecasters are also warning of poor driving conditions and travel disruptions.
The southern regions will suffer the brunt of the rainstorms for the remainder of the week, including Tuesday when England face Germany at Wembley.
Despite the rain, temperatures will be mild throughout and the dial is expected to reach 19 ° C in time to kick off.
From Wednesday, there will be pockets of rain that will subside, becoming drier and brighter as next weekend approaches.
Senior Met Office meteorologist Steven Keates said “there is a reasonable chance of rain which could be heavy, at least sometimes during the match” in north London.
The England side faced similar conditions when they faced Scotland in the group stage of the tournament two weeks ago in a 0-0 draw.
Mr Keats said: “For the remainder of the week it looks like the high pressure will persist, influencing the weather over much of northern and central Britain and Ireland, but southern England, and in particular the south-east, will remain at risk of showers.
“With a largely easterly flow, the coasts of the North Sea will often be cooler and sometimes cloudier, with the best of the sun and the warmth of the sheltered west. “
Many supporters across the country, especially in the North, will be able to watch the Euro 2020 game in the sun.
