Britons make the most of 75F Saturday weather before two inches of rain brings floods to end weekend

A cheeky swimmer took to the sea in only his birthday suit as Britons made the most of the last blast of summer today before two inches of rain is expected to hit the country tomorrow.

The skinny dipper was spotted getting out of the water after a refreshing dip in the coastal town of Bournemouth on Saturday while fellow beach goers flocked to the sands to soak up the last rays of summer sunshine with crowds of people out strolling along the seafront.

Temperatures will peak at around 75F (24C) today in the south west, with bright sunny spells expected in most of the country, according to Met Office forecasters.  

However, a yellow weather warning is in place for Sunday with Britons in the east of England set to be battered by heavy rain and thundery showers in a ‘relatively short time’ which could potentially cause localised flooding. 

The deluge is expected to bring up to two inches of rainfall, as The Met Office warns that it could lead to travel distruptions and delays to public transport after Saturday’s good weather.

The Met Office has also warned that there is a slight chance that people in the affected areas may experience power cuts and loss of other services.

Met Office forecasters said: ‘A band of rain and heavy, thundery showers will slowly drift east through Sunday before becoming slow-moving over the highlighted area later in the day.

‘Where these showers become slow-moving, 30 to 40 mm of rain could fall in a relatively short time leading to surface water flooding and transport disruption.’

SWIMMERS WARNED OF RIP CURRENT DANGER AS OFF-DUTY LIFEGUARDS RESCUE BODYBOARDER

The coastguard has warned of the dangers of rip currents after two off-duty lifeguards rescued a bodyboarder who had been struggling at sea for half an hour.

The male had got into difficulty in the water off Perran Sands beach in Cornwall on Saturday morning.

Lifeguards Charlie Florey and Ben Evans had been on their way to work at around 9.30am when they spotted him and leapt into action when he failed to raise his hand in response to their call through the PA system.

Mr Evans paddled out to find the bodyboarder ‘completely exhausted’, the RNLI said.

Mr Florey had called for an ambulance and the pair brought the casualty to the beach lifeguard unit to treat him for exhaustion and sickness from having swallowed a lot of water.

The bodyboarder, who the RNLI did not have any details for, was transferred into the care of paramedics when the ambulance service arrived.

The lifeguards have been praised for their ‘vigilance’ and quick reaction.

Lifeguard supervisor Drustan Ward said: ‘Time was of the essence as the casualty had been in difficulty in the rip current for approximately half an hour and was in need of help urgently. We would like to wish him a speedy recovery following his ordeal.’

Mr Ward warned that rip currents such as that on Saturday can be hard to spot, but can sometimes be identified by ‘a channel of churning, choppy water on the sea’s surface’.

He added: ‘Even the most experienced beachgoers and swimmers can be caught out by rips so we would advise if you do get caught in a rip, don’t try to swim against it or you will get exhausted.

‘If you can stand, wade and don’t swim. If you can, swim parallel to the shore until free of the rip and then head for shore. If you can, always raise your hand and shout for help.’

Anyone who sees a person who might be in trouble in the water is advised to call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard.

The RNLI advised that people intending to go into the water visit patrolled lifeguarded beaches and stay between the red and yellow flags.
