STORM Debi’s 80mph gales and torrential rain will finally give way to clear skies and sunshine – but it won’t last long.
The break will come to much of the UK on Wednesday – but northern and central areas will be out.
Despite a sunny outlook, a yellow weather warning for thunderstorms was introduced across much of southern England on Tuesday.
It stretches from Cheltenham to the Isle of Wight, across Kent, London and across to Southend in Essex.
The warning is valid until 3pm today and warns of gusts of up to 80km/h, with thunderstorms, hail and lightning also possible.
The Met Office said buildings could be damaged and a short-term loss of power and other services was possible.
