UK weather forecast: Country ‘colder than Finland’ as Brits set for rain and thunderstorms

One of the last weekends of lockdown will be a washout

The weather forecast in the UK is set to go from bad to worse.

Thunderstorms are set to batter the country ahead of pubs and restaurants finally re-opening on Monday.
