0


GREAT BRITAIN will be hit even harder by torrential rains and thunder this week in a seven-day washout, as Brits start to meet inside from today.

Britain faces one of the wettest May on record as torrential rains and thunderstorms hit much of the UK this week after many suffered a wet Sunday outside from the pub.

Knee-length flash floods hit Bolton on Sunday night as forecasters warned of heavier rains and thunderstorms across Britain on the day pubs finally leave drinkers inside.

Over a month of windy and rainy socializing ended at midnight, when pals can finally meet in pubs and homes.

On Friday there had been 91% of the expected precipitation for the whole month, already with 63.5mm – so if things stay as wet as they have been, May 2021 could break the record of 131.7mm in 1967.

Met Office forecaster Steven Keates said even if the record were not broken it would be a “particularly wet month”.
