UK weather news today – Met Office: Rain & thunder bring flash flooding chaos as washout dampens England lockdown lift

BRITAIN will be battered further by rain storms and thunder this week in a seven-day washout, as Brits start to meet inside from today.

Britain faces one of the wettest Mays on record as torrential downpours and thunderstorms wbatter much of the UK this week after many endured a wet Sunday outside the pub.

Knee-deep flash flooding hit Bolton on Sunday night as forecasters warned of more heavy rain and thunderstorms across Britain on the day pubs will finally let drinkers indoors.

More than a month of socialising in the wind and rain came to a blissful end at midnight, as pals can at last meet inside pubs and homes.

By Friday there had been 91 per cent of the expected rainfall for the entire month, with 63.5mm already – so if things stay as wet as have been, May 2021 could beat the record 131.7mm in 1967.

Met Office forecaster Steven Keates said even if the record is not broken, it will be a “notably wet month”.
