Rain and thunderstorms are set to make way for sunshine and warmth in time for Glastonbury this weekend, according to the Met Office. The June washout will continue on Monday and Tuesday, with severe Met Office weather warnings for rain and thunderstorms covering large parts of the UK.

Scotland and Northern Ireland will be slightly cooler, although the mercury is expected to rise above 20C on Saturday. Met Office spokeswoman Nicola Maxey said: “The continent is seeing some very high temperatures, with record-breaking temperatures expected across France, Spain and Belgium. “We are not seeing temperatures as hot as Europe, but it will be warm for the UK.” She added: “By Saturday we could be looking at 30C in the south, with London looking at 30C but with isolated spots of 33C, 34C or 35C, maybe.” Last year’s record for June, a month in which the UK was hit by a series of wildfires, was 33C recorded at Porthmadog in Gwynedd. Glastonbury festival-goers will be treated to consistently warm and dry weather, with temperatures expected to largely remain in the mid to high-20s throughout the weekend.
