Irregular rain will hit much of the UK today, with no chance of sustained sunshine into the weekend, according to the Met Office.
Temperatures could be 10°C lower today than yesterday.
Charts show temperatures drop as Brits wave goodbye to Sunday’s mini-heatwave.
Brits have been basking in warm sunshine for the past few days, with highs of 24C recorded in London and the south-east on Sunday.
But as of today, that weather is no more – with stormy conditions expected due to a strengthening jet stream making the weather more unpredictable.
The wretched spells are interrupted by clap of thunder when the wind speed increases.
A Met Office spokesman said: “Uncertain for most with showers or prolonged downpours, some heavily with risk of thunderstorms.
“Windy Wednesday and Thursday with more rain or showers. Temperatures near average.”
Cloudier over east and south east England with some rain and cooler than Sunday. Some sunny spells elsewhere but also plenty of cloud and showers, these heavy with possible thunder in parts of the west and north.
Showers for many areas, while parts of central, southern Scotland and north-east England are likely to experience prolonged and at times heavy rain.
Rain in the east will be rainier. Sunshine and showers elsewhere, some heavy with thunder in central and southern areas. Less showers in the west.
Outlook for Wednesday to Friday:
Outbursts of rain, heavy in places, spread east on Wednesday. Rain or showers for many northern areas on Thursday, drier in the south. Most places will be dry and bright on Friday.
