Karl and Lisa to merge into a herculean superstorm and throttle Britain

Britain may reel under heatwave conditions if the temperatures today surpass 28ºC and if it does, this would be the warmest April in the last 70 years.

The Met department also says that if the mercury levels soar above 28ºC, this would break the 2001 maximum of 27.8ºC. However, a relief in form of thunderstorms and heavy rain is also on cards for most parts of the UK on the weekend.

On Saturday, unsteady conditions with showery rain and thunder may mark the arrival to a rainy Sunday with a cooler weather into the next week. Moreover, by the next week, until the beginning of May, the temperatures would once again fall back to normal.


As per the Met Office, these episodes of rain would move in over the south-west through Saturday morning and spread northwards, with some heavy showers along with the danger of thunderstorms. The best possibility of thunderstorms would be during the late evening and night hours.

The stormy weather along with lightning strikes is expected to batter parts of Northern England, the Midlands, Wales and southwest England. With the rounds of rain, the risk of flash flooding is also anticipated to be high, causing travel disruptions.

However, despite the heavy rains, the daytime highs would continue to remain above normal and between 17-23C across England and Wales.
