London is set for a big downpour to round off what has been a disappointing month. Forecasters from WX Charts predict that at 6pm next Wednesday (June 26) a deluge of rain will soak London, the Midlands, and parts of the north.

London is covered in orange shading on the map, which indicates that around four millimetres of rain will fall per hour. This won't be the news anyone has wanted to hear, considering the gloomy month we've had.

However, the forecaster is predicting a largely dry start of next month with a splash of rain to hit on July 2.

But until then, the elements should be on our side, as the Met Office forecasts a mini heatwave - with temperatures bouncing between 20C and 23C - between today (June 17) and Sunday (June 23). The upcoming forecast can be found below.
