Flood warnings have been issued for parts of Scotland as the UK braces for a soggy week of heavy summer rain and positively freezing temperatures.

A band of rain from the west will be driving storms along the coast from Tuesday, while thunder and lightning are likely later in the week.

There will be sticky weather for the start of the Wimbledon Championships on Monday but luckily London will dodge the worst of the bad weather.

The Met Office has warned a massive cyclone stretching from Scandinavia to Spain will hit the UK with a three-day washout after a fortnight of sun.

A massive low-pressure area off the west coast will send temperatures plummeting in parts of the country, with lows in the north and Scotland falling to 10C or 11C.

In more northerly parts it could even drop to as low as 4C overnight thanks to the British weather Service forecaster Jim Dale calls a “polar maritime air mass across the country.”

On Monday morning, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) issued two flood warnings for Dumfries and Galloway and the Scottish Borders.

Met Office meteorologist Martin Bowles has warned that “further wet and windy weather” is expected in the North West from Monday evening, with showers set to move across the rest of the UK tomorrow.

While cloud cover will keep temperatures largely mild, mercury will fall into the single digits in some rural areas in the south-east – a far cry from the sweltering 32C of mid-June.

Thankfully, skies should clear from Monday evening and temperatures should rise for much of the south east, bringing some relief before another band of wind and rain hits Britain from mid-week.
