A devastating weather forecast shows London is due yet another washout in what has been a wet and dreary summer. According to forecasters at WX Charts, it will pour with rain next Monday, July 16, at around 6pm.

This will be heart-breaking for those who were hoping for just a slither of sunshine to celebrate a possible Euro 2024 win the night before (or some good weather to cheer everyone up after a loss).

On the map, the rain is represented by blue shading, which shows around 0.6mm of rain falling in London per hour.

But don’t despair, as The Met Office, next Thursday (July 18) will be the warmest day next week with thermostats peaking at 24C.
