Heavy showers look set to return for parts of the country after days of sporadic deluges triggered flash flooding.

North Wales, the north of England, Northern Ireland and Western Scotland could see isolated downpours dumping over a week of rain in an hour on Thursday, bringing a risk of localised flooding.

In Huddersfield the message from weatherman Paul Stevens is: “Enjoy Thursday’s sunshine”.

He expects temperatures to return to normal or even below over the next couple of days with a mixture of sunshine and showers.

“The outlook is much more unsettled with temperatures returning to normal with sun and showers from Friday, with winds returning more west south west with this pattern taking us through to the last part of June with no signals for the return of warmth.
