UK weather forecast – Brits brace for hail and THUNDER this week, before Jubilee weekend brings 20C scorcher

THE UK is set to be battered by hail and thunder before the Queen's Platinum Jubilee weekend brings a 20C sizzler.

Before celebrations get underway, Brits will have to endure chilly temperatures and rain lashing down in a miserable start to the week.

The Met Office has warned of showers and potential thunderstorms today as brisk winds barrel in from the north.

Highs in the low teens are expected in many areas during the day.

And the situation isn't due to get any better on Tuesday and Wednesday as hail and thunder could sweep across parts of the country.

The Met Office predicts it will be "rather cool" with a "mixture of sunny spells and showers, some heavy with hail and thunder".

Deputy chief meteorologist Chris Bulmer said: “Cooler and more unsettled conditions will be quite widely established by Monday. 

“After a cool start to the week, temperatures are expected to return back to around average through the week.

But thankfully by Thursday – as Brits start a four-day bank holiday weekend – temperatures are set to soar and conditions are expected to be "mostly dry away from the north".

Highs of 20C are expected in parts of the UK as celebrations get into full swing on Thursday.

The Met Office has predicted highs of 19C on Friday – while BBC Weather goes one better, predicting 20C sunshine, with 19C highs on both Saturday and Sunday.

But as Brits cross their fingers for a bank holiday scorcher, meteorologist Chris has warned the weather may not play ball.

He said: "What we’re keeping an eye on for the latter part of the week is how far north this plume of warm air comes.

"This brings the potential for outbreaks of heavy rain in places.

"There’s still a lot to be determined for the Jubilee weekend forecast.

"On balance, it looks like after a showery start, though still fine in places, high pressure will attempt to build from the west bringing more settled and drier weather, at least for some.” 

Forecasters have already warned that there's huge uncertainty over the temperature for next weekend as a "loose cannon" weather system moves in.

It's feared that a low pressure system from the Azores could bring plenty of cold and wet weather.

Aidan McGivern of the Met Office said the system is "going to meander about fairly randomly", adding: "That makes its behaviour difficult to predict."
