Farmers Weather expert, Garry Nicholson has warns of frustrating weather to come as it looks as though the sunshine is not here to stay.
He said: "We are hearing from plenty of farmers trying to get some hay or silage done, and it is becoming tricky to guarantee that much needed window of dry weather in the next couple of weeks.
"Thunderstorms in the south-east on Wednesday night (June 22-23) brought between 40 and 50mm of rain locally, causing flash flooding.
"This amount of rain is about the typical rainfall total for the entire month of June in the south-east. There’s further storms to come on Thursday night too.
"Friday and Saturday will bring heavy showers, these most widespread on Saturday, when they will be slow moving, resulting in rain for several hours locally, particularly in central areas.
"From Sunday onwards, a general westerly pattern will dominate, with belts of rain or showers spreading frequently in from the Atlantic, although rainfall totals will be fairly small overall. The north-west will see the wettest weather, whilst central and south-eastern regions will see the least rain.
"There will be a fresh breeze on most days, plus some sunshine from time to time, which will help drying conditions, but the week ahead will be a struggle to keep 2 completely dry days together for many places.
"This changeable weather pattern looks likely to continue into the start of July."
