Temperatures expected to fall everywhere in UK except south coast

Temperatures are predicted to drop by nearly 15C in some parts of the UK after the hottest day of the year so far.

The UK recorded the hottest day of the year for a third consecutive day on Friday.

The Met Office said rain could fall in the Midlands and that temperatures there could fall to 15C from highs of 29C on Friday, after gusts of hot continental air swept across the UK.

As a result of an influx of cooler Atlantic air, the mercury is predicted to drop across Scotland, Wallis, Northern Ireland and most of England.

The north-west is predicted to have a 11C fall from 25C to 14C, while the south coast is expected to remain scorchingly hot, possibly experiencing highs of 30C.

Op Sondag, rain is predicted for the southern parts and the north while other regions are expected to have sunny spells.

A flood warning is in place in England and Scotland.

Spring tides have prompted a flood alert – which warns that flooding is possible – in south-west London, for the Tidal Thames riverside from Putney Bridge to Teddington Weir, at 6.45am on Saturday.

A government statement said: “River levels are expected to be high as a result of spring tides. Flooding of low-lying roads and footpaths is expected, which may exist for one to two hours either side of high tide. Flooding of properties is not expected.”

The alert is expected to be updated at 1pm on Saturday.

Meanwhile the Churchill Barriers, in Orkney, has a flood warning – which means flooding is expected – in place.

The Scottish Environment Protection Agency said road closures were likely there around high tide, which is between 12.30am and 2am on Saturday.

It warned that further flooding could take place from 12.30pm and 2pm on Saturday.
