Brits have been warned that miserable downpours are set to batter parts of the country over 17 hours.

The Met Office's yellow weather warning, which encompasses all of the south west this weekend, comes a day after a freak 'tornado' caused chaos in London on Friday night.

Despite the washout weather which is set to ruin plans this weekend, in the coming days brighter news is on the horizon.

There are reports of a 30C heatwave making its way to the UK next week, just in time for when England face off against Germany in the Euros.

The weather warning, telling Brits to 'be prepared' is in place for parts of the south on Sunday and Monday.

It begins at 2pm today and ends at 10am Monday morning.

Those living in Cornwall, Portsmouth, and in between – including areas in Swansea, Wales, have been told to brace for torrential rain.

Commuters may face flooded roads and public transport may be delayed.

However, there is a north-south split with the northern parts of England seeing better weather.

Those seeking sunshine for summer vibes, especially after a bleak May, may only need to wait a few more days.

A Spanish plume heading towards the UK bringing a weather front full of high pressure could send the mercury in the opposite direction.

Bookmakers believe temperatures will soar to 30C sometime next week, with July 1 on Thursday, seeming the best bet for sunny rays.

Although the final day or two of June is looking up as well.

At the beginning of June, Brits basked in a glorious 10-day heatwave and saw hotter temperatures than famous holiday destinations like France or Ibiza.

But the last week saw it dive to near-freezing levels, bringing flash floods, thundery showers, and a 'tornado'.

It's forecast that temperatures will begin to soar from Tuesday with highs of 23C, just in time for England's Euro 2020 match with Germany at Wembley.

It will then increase again the following two days offering three days of sunshine.

As July begins, a slow-moving jet stream will sweep across the UK, according to the BBC's long-range forecast.

The weather agency believes a heatwave could hit Brits again next month, in only a matter of weeks.

The broadcaster said: "Computer models are very enthusiastic on developing a strong high to our east over Germany and into Scandinavia by mid-July.

"This would be a very warm pattern for the UK with a potential for heatwaves.”
