3 mins read


According to the weather experts, a slow-moving area of low pressure has been parked close to the west of Ireland for much of the week, with bands of showers and thunderstorms spiralling around the low across much of the British Isles. AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tyler Roys said: “Western and southern Scotland will encounter showers Sunday afternoon, so those who plan on going to pay their respects in these locations are going to want to have raincoats or ponchos handy.”

On Monday, mourners in Edinburgh are likely to pay respects to Her Majesty who passed away on Thursday afternoon.

Mr Roys said: “It is likely to shower on Monday morning in Edinburgh.”

According to Netweather.tv, on Sunday and Monday, shortwave troughs rotating around the low engaged the moist plume and brought bands of quite lively thunderstorms northeast across England and Wales.

Netweather.tv weather expert Nick Finnis said: “Storms erupting over Dorset and English Channel formed a line of storms which moved northeast across England Sunday night, bringing vivid lightning displays.

“Then on Monday, a strong line of storms pushed in across SW England and south Wales in the afternoon, bringing torrential rain and even a house was caught on camera struck by lightning in Cornwall.

“Storms then rolled northeast off the English Channel further east across central southern England early Monday evening, with spectacular shelf clouds observed as the storms arrived along the Dorset coast.

“The storms then formed a line and pushed northeast across much of England and Wales during Monday evening.

“A second night of storms for many areas.”
