UK weather: Thunderstorms to smash Glastonbury but parts of Britain to bask in 23C sun – maps show where rain will hit | The Sun

THUNDERSTORMS are set to smash Glastonbury this weekend just days after revellers partied in 28C heats.

Festival goers are being hit by all the elements this week while other parts of Britain are still basking in the sun.

Revellers at Worthy Farm need to brace themselves for the wet weather today.

Meanwhile the south east of the country will be treated to 23C temperatures.

Forecaster Helen Roberts said: “This weekend is looking rather changeable – a little bit of a shock to the system in comparison with some recent days as low pressure is firmly in charge of our weather.

She explained: “As we start Saturday there will be some brightness around but quite quickly showers will develop especially across western parts of the country.

“These will be on the heavy side with the odd rumble of thunder mixed in.

“The best chance of staying dry will be for eastern parts of the country.”

And tomorrow the contrast will be even more clear – as the west is hit with more showers.

Helen said: “As we start sunday there will be a half and half story across the country 

“Dry and bright conditions in the east but quite a lot of cloud in the west and some showers with heavy downpour and thunder.”

However, some forecasters believe the warmth could return towards the end of next week.

Brian Gaze of The Weather Outlook said some models suggest scorching 32C sunshine in central and eastern England on Thursday.

There are "some blow torch runs" in summertime forecasts which "definitely needs watching".

Another four heatwaves have been predicted by the time the season ends, with temperatures reaching "well into the high 30s".

Leon Brown of US-based forecaster The Weather Company said: "More heatwaves imported from the continent to the UK are forecast this summer, each reaching at least 28C – and likely higher – and each lasting several days."

Two heatwaves could be on the cards in August and even September, he said.
