BRITAIN’S brief but glorious summer is due to fizzle out tomorrow as non-stop rain and gloomy temperatures make a return.
Torrential downpours and strong winds will bring an abrupt end to a week of blue skies and sunshine, forecasters warn.
Temperatures will struggle to reach 60F (16C) in areas that basked in highs of 86F just a few days ago – with a band of low pressure also bringing heavy downpours and winds, which could even touch gale-force in parts.
Paul Michaelwaite from Netweather said the North will be first in line for the rain with the rest of the UK braced for downpours next week.
He explained: “Into the weekend the cooler air pushes into all parts and then we’re into the familiar regime of sunshine and showers.

“These will return with a vengeance into Sunday with just about everywhere liable to catch a sharp downpour. Into next week we keep the showers going, along with a spell of rain and wind arriving into the South-west during Monday and pushing North-east into Tuesday.”
Jim Dale, forecaster for British Weather Services, said: “It is going to be a tough week and a million miles away from what we have just had.”
Temperatures are expected to hover around the low 60s in the South with highs in the North struggling to hit 50F.
The country faces weeks of grey skies and rain with no improvement until the end of August.
Jonathan Powell of Vantage Weather Services said: “August is shaping up to be very shabby with more rain. There may be some short bursts of heat but September looks like it might be the last chance for summer.”
