After experiencing heavy rain last week with flooding in some parts of England, weather experts are predicting more cloudbursts.
From Tuesday some areas could experience serious downpours carrying the threat of flooding. The Met Office has already reported up to 120mm of rain near the town of Ventnor.
Meanwhile, the Isle of Wight has already been hit by flooding.
“Today and tomorrow, there will be a mixture of sunshine and showers for most across the UK,” a representative from the Met Office said.
“The weather will be more unsettled from Wednesday onwards. There’s showers or longer spells of rain for most areas as we go from Wednesday into Thursday and potentially Friday as well.”
On Monday, South Western Railway urged people to prepare for extra time for their journeys. Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service also urged people in areas impacted by the floods to keep electric gadgets away from sodden places.
However, a number of areas in England are beginning to dry out whilst others are still experiencing light showers.
Forecasters predict better conditions by the mid of August. Mr Petagna said Britons can expect drier and warmer conditions and also said there were no predictions of another heatwave.
