MORE heavy showers are set to batter parts of the UK today after thunderstorms and downpours sparked flooding over the past 24 hours.
The Met Office warned there would be heavy rain across southeast Scotland, northeast England and eastern England.
Northern Scotland and Northern Ireland will be cloudier with some light rain.
Later in the evening there is a risk of thundery showers in eastern Scotland and the far north-east of England, according to Meteogroup.
In stark contrast, widespread warm and sunny spells are expected in the south of the UK.
It comes after more than a month’s worth of rain fell in just a few hours on Wednesday evening.
Parts of Dingwall in the Highlands were flooded after the biblical downpours.
Forecasters also warned a month’s worth of rain fell could fall in two hours on Thursday night.
Meteorologist Emma Smith said 30mm of rain could fall in one hour, while 50mm could fall in two to three hours.
The average amount of rainfall in July for the UK as a whole is 70mm, while the July average for England is 55-56mm – meaning that almost a month’s worth of rainfall could fall in a couple of hours.
In Balmoral – where the Royal Family has a Scottish holiday home – 21 mm fell in one thunderstorm between 3pm and 4pm on Thursday.
Conditions look as though they may improve over the weekend, with widespread sunshine expected on Saturday.
