Why has the weather in Britain (and the High Peak) turned so wet? A peculiar thing about these rains is the direction they have come from — swept in from Europe rather than the UK’s typical wet weather that is blown in off the Atlantic.  The thunderstorms and torrents of rain of the past few days have been triggered by a split pattern across Europe. Blistering heat that reached the high thirties celsius across parts of central and eastern Europe collided with much cooler air over western Europe and the UK. The collision of these air masses set off some violent thunderstorms across large parts of western Europe with torrential rain, large hailstones, destructive winds, tornados and a train of deep depressions rolling up from the south.    The track of the jet stream is also to blame. It is stuck in a wavy pattern, with great loops twisting north and south. Those loops are hardly moving and have left the UK with unseasonably cool air, as well as slow-moving depressions from the south. This also explains why regions, such as the southeast of England and East Anglia, that are normally dry at this time of the year have been hit by the intense rainfalls.
Is any of this weather to do with climate change? There appears to be no clear-cut trend for rainfall in Britain in June over the decades. However, it is odd that the three wettest Junes have come in recent times — the wettest in 2012, the second wettest in 2007 and third wettest in 1997. It looks increasingly likely that this month is also going to feature as one of the wettest Junes.
Looping jet streams have been driving much of these extremely wet and hot Junes — as happened last year. There is increasing evidence, however, that as the Arctic rapidly warms up, the melting Arctic sea ice is helping to distort the jet stream.
As for our present weather, all is not quite gloom and doom. After this week’s superabundance of rain, there is at last a ray of sunlight, with forecasts hinting of the return of sunshine, possibly even turning very warm in places next week.

-UK, Met Office - Longer Range Forecast, for the entire UK   Met Office.:
----Wednesday 19 Jun - Friday 28 Jun
The changeable and showery theme looks set to continue, with low pressure situated to the northwest of the UK, and high pressure to the south or southwest. Showers mainly focused in the north and west, with strong winds at times. It will be warmer than of late with some sunshine and drier interludes in between the showers or longer spells of rain, especially in the south and east. However, there is the risk of some heavy and thundery showers moving up from the south at times, particularly middle of next week and it my become very warm in the southeast for a time. As we head into the final week of June, there are signs that high pressure may dominate, bringing a greater chance of more settled and warm weather.
Saturday 29 Jun - Saturday 13 Jul
Although uncertain, the most likely weather for the end of June could well be a continuation of mostly dry and warm weather for the southeast of the UK, along with light winds. Windier and wetter weather is likely at times in the northwest but there will be dry spells here too. Into July, conditions will be similar, with showers or longer spells of rain at times, although the south and southeast will probably see the warmest and driest weather, with occasional thundery outbreaks. Temperatures will be near or slightly above the average for the time of year.--
