BBC Weather is forecasting thunderstorms after a mini heatwave

Meteorologists are predicting that the weather will drastically worsen following the mini-heatwave, where temperatures have reached 26 degrees. But now – according to BBC forecasters – there will be “thunder showers and light winds” this Thursday, May 16 and Saturday, May 18.

The rest of the week doesn’t look too promising either, with non-stop rain and gray skies. The silver lining is that the sun should come out through the clouds so hopefully it won’t be too gloomy.

Temperatures will also be around 18C, making sure things don’t get absolutely freezing. The future forecast can be found below.
