800-mile wide Atlantic storm set to hit Britain bringing along four days of downpours. The soakings in many areas is set to last until at least Saturday. The deluges are expected from 10 am, with Wednesday being the beginning of four days of intense rain.

Daily thunderstorms expected across the country, and over an inch of rain are expected in intense showers in parts. Snow is due today and tomorrow night in the North on high ground, and on Thursday on north Wales’ mountains. Gusts up to 45mph will buffet South, West and East coasts and highs will be just 11-15C.




Disappointed Brits quit beach resorts early as Bank Holiday Monday was colder than Siberia; and verged on the coldest ever.




Atlantic storm would bring floods and further drop in temperatures.




A 2,000-mile wide North Pole ‘polar plunge’ chill made yesterday verge on the record for the coldest early May Bank Holiday since the holiday began 41 years ago in 1978.





As per Met Office Monday was close to the coldest May Bank Holiday minimum temperature on record, and Tuesday morning could be colder at -5C in Scotland.




The coldest air coming to Britain is from north of Russia, converging with cold air from well north of the Arctic Circle, not too far from the Pole, and flooding to the UK and a good part of Europe as far south as Italy. U.K. will witness low pressure.
