The tropical temperatures that dazzled Britain in sunshine yesterday are turning to rain today as forecasters warn of nationwide storms.
Torrential downpours could see up to a month's rain fall in some places over a 60-hour period of wind, with Met Office 'danger to life' warnings in place for almost all of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales.
Homes and businesses could be flooded amid warnings of lightning strikes and gail-force winds. Thunderstorms are likely to mean travel chaos for large swathes of the country, with train and bus services delayed or cancelled and driving conditions treacherous.
Some communities could experience power cuts, with severe weather warnings in place for all of today and part of tomorrow.
Later in the week Britain could break its 35C (95F) June temperature record as a 2,000-mile wide African air plume brings Europe a record heatwave – and the Met Office forecasts a hot summer after the grim Sunday-to-Tuesday period.
