Flood warnings have been issued as up to three week’s worth of rain could batter most of the UK over Friday and Saturday.

Thunderstorms, hail and lightening could cause a Glastonbury mud bath and a Wimbledon washout.

The Met Office forecast the downpours to commence in the early hours of Friday.

A spokesperson said: ‘Showers will become heavy and thundery across southwestern parts of England and Wales early on Friday, moving northeast to affect other areas south of The Wash to North Wales during the day.

‘Some reduction in activity is expected overnight, before further slow moving heavy and thundery downpours develop during Saturday, easing from the north later.

‘The public should be aware that the resulting downpours may lead to localised flooding and potential disruption to transport and outdoor events.’
