Summer isn’t over yet as Britain’s heatwave will come back later this week

LONDON July 30: The heatwave which has baked the UK in recent weeks is set to return after this rare spell of rain and unsettled weather this weekend. The heavens opened across the country on Saturday as unsettled weather brought storms and torrential rain across Britain. 
 
However, the Met Office is predicting the sunshine and warm temperatures will return by the end of this week. 
 
A Met Office forecaster told Metro.co.uk: ‘It is pretty unsettled. There is a weather warning for the south of England and Wales. ‘Then we will start to see high pressure building throughout the week and by Friday temperatures will be back in the 20s. 
 
‘The south will be warmer than the north, which will experience unsettled weather during the week.’ The yellow warnings in place for today are for London, the south east, the south west and south Wales. 
 
They warn of spray and flooding on roads probably making journey times longer, delays for high-sided vehicles on exposed routes and bridges, some coastal routes, sea fronts and coastal communities will be affected by spray and/or large waves, some short term loss of power and other services is possible and there could be damage to tents or other temporary structures. 
 
Yesterday saw the first torrential rain for weeks and people were caught in downpours across the country with Yorkshire even experience a violent hailstorm. Gardeners and groundsmen up and down the country rejoiced in the rainfall which they have been desperately waiting weeks for.
