Torrential downpours did nothing to dampen spirits of Brits determined to have a good night out.
The recent heatwave came to a crashing end and fears of rising coronavirus infection rates continue to dominate headlines – but it didn't stop party-lovers hitting the town.
Punters across the UK looked ready to let their hair down as weeks worth of rain was dumped on towns and cities following days of hot weather.
They dashed between downpours or did their best to shelter from rain as they headed to pubs, bars and restaurants which have been enjoying a return to business since lockdown measures began easing last month.
Pictures showed women dressed to the nines using their handbags as umbrellas as they skipped between puddles in Leeds and Manchester on Saturday night.
While other pub-goers took shelter under their jackets as they weather turned foul.
With temperatures dropping drastically from the mid 30Cs in the UK to low 20Cs – and the mid-teens in some parts of the UK – revellers looked unfazed.
They perhaps welcomed the cooler temperatures to the previous over-30C heat brought by African weather fronts.
Streets were busy as confidence in going out began to return after weeks of coronavirus lockdowns.
Pubs, bars, cafes and restaurants have introduced increased health and safety measures since July 4 to encourage punters to return to their favourite nightspots.
This is though while continuing to promote safety amid the ongoing health pandemic.
And while there have been some spikes in coronavirus infection rates in parts of the UK, the number of deaths related to the killer virus have fallen in recent weeks.
Wales and the South of England were all under a yellow alert for Thunderstorms on Sunday following torrential downpours.
The Met Office – who issued the weather warning – said: “Further heavy showers and thunderstorms are expected at times and may lead to some flooding and travel disruption.”
The public are advised: “Flooding of homes and businesses could happen quickly, with damage to some buildings from floodwater, lightning strikes, hail or strong winds.”
It comes as storms continue to rattle across the UK.
The same weather warning extends further north of England on Monday – while the dramatic weather is forecast to subside by Tuesday.
