BBC weather forecaster Louise Lear said the “unseasonably windy” conditions, with gusts of 50-55mph along the south coast, is due to low pressure over the UK.
She said: “There’ll be plenty of sharp showers, some of them heavy, some of them quite thundery as well and temperatures a little bit subdued for July.
“There will be some brighter, quieter interludes but those temperatures are really struggling, 16-20C at the very best.”
