Despite the mercury rising, weather maps show that there will still be the odd spot of rain accross the country, including along the south west coast of England as well as in the north west of England and Wales.
And although temperatures look set to rise this weekend after a spate of freezing temperatures the length and breadth of Britain. Meanwhile new weather maps have revealed when a giant 1,000-mile wall of rain will batter British shores.
According to the Met Office, the highest rain totals will be focused in western parts of the UK over the next few days, falling on already very wet ground. A second low pressure will reinforce the heavy rain through Thursday and bring further weather fronts across the UK during Friday and Saturday morning.
With the country witnessing more episodes of heavy storms this year, experts have tried to find an answer for it. Jim Dale, a meteorologist with British Weather Services told express.co.uk: “The difference is climate change is allowing a little more energy into the atmosphere off record warm ocean temperatures. This leads to more rain volume capability. Everything else is within the normal sphere.”
