It follows a weekend of relentless rainfall for many, with parts of the South East recording up to a month's worth of rainfall in one day on Friday.

Forecasters are now predicting it will be largely wet and cloudy from Wednesday right up until the weekend.

Oli Claydon from the Met Office said: "The best of the brightness will be further north and showers will hit the south of the UK this weekend.

"Southern regions of the UK can see temperatures hit the mid-20s by Sunday."

The current outlook for July appears to be more promising, with temperatures expected to be above average at times.

Forecasts for London predict that by the end of the month and into early July the capital and some surrounding areas will see high temperatures of up to 25C.

Current forecasts show the warmer weather is expected to last for days.
