Britain will be mired in another week of rain showers, storms and heavy winds, weather forecasters have warned.
The Government’s flood warning service has issued two for the River Ouse in Yorkshire and a further 16 alerts, affecting the Midlands, north-east and Norfolk.
According to The Weather Outlook, entire swathes of the UK are going to be hit by the week-long deluge, with only a small chance of dry weather in the south.
“Unsettled weather continues this week with further wet periods in all regions,” Brian Gaze said.
“It will also be windy at times. Later on forecast uncertainty grows.
“In the south it could turn drier for a time but by the weekend there is a risk of further heavy rain.”
It said: “Windy with sunny spells and blustery showers, heaviest and most frequent showers over Northern Ireland and northern and western Scotland.
“Parts of eastern Scotland and north-east England may stay dry.”
Tomorrow London will reach 17C but will be cloudy with rain showers later on.
Birmingham is forecast to have rain and an average temperate of 15C.

Meanwhile Liverpool and Manchester will be a bit drier, but still 15C.
Edinburgh and Glasgow will only reach 13C but will be mostly sunny all day long.
Unfortunately, a UK-wide washout is in the works for the rest of the week.
The forecaster added: “Remaining unsettled with further showers or longer spells of rain for most places.
“Windy generally, particularly Friday. Temperatures around average by day, though with mild nights.”
Met Office forecaster Helen Roberts told The Sun: “It’s rather a soggy start to the working week especially across northern and western parts of the country.
She continued: “Temperatures are somewhat suppressed underneath all that cloud and rain [today].
“That will continue to journey eastwards through Monday evening with clearer skies pushing in from the northwest behind but also quite frequent and blustery showers as well – some of those will be really very heavy indeed with some torrential downpours, thunder, lightning and hail mixed in.”
