Rain and thunderstorms are set to follow the hottest day this year causing temperatures to tumble by up to 15 degrees overnight.

MetOffice forecasters said on June 18 that following the three hottest days of the year, the UK will see a sharp drop in temperatures on Sunday. The hot weather that has affected the UK, France and Spain saw a high of 32.7 C in Santon Downham in Suffolk.

With the warm Africa air that was descending on Western Europe coming to an end, the weather will give way to cooler conditions more in keeping with the time of year.

According to the Met Office, temperatures in the Midlands could see temperatures drop to the mid tends, as an influx of cooler Atlantic air moves over the country.

Temperatures in the North West could see temperatures drop to the lower teens after unseasonal highs of 30 c.

The north and the south are likely to see thunderstorms with flood warnings in place for many regions across England and Scotland. Spring tides could bring flooding to parts of London, Scotland and the Orkney Islands as rivers reach peak levels.  

Flooding is expected two hours either side of the early morning high tide, between midnight and dawn.

The Metoffice has asked people to take care with temperatures set to tumble as the rains return.
