It is another wet weekend for many parts of the UK with heavy rainfall expected on Saturday and Sunday.
The Met Office say that despite scattered and persistent showers across Britain temperatures are still warm with highs of 24C in the South East.
No flood alerts or warnings have been issued so far although the heaviest rainfall is expected in Eastern Scotland and England on Sunday.
There is cause for optimism for people hoping for better weather next week as a warm front is expected on Monday with sunnier temperatures upwards of 27C. The warm weather is expected to last most of next week although not as hot as the last heatwave from mid-late July which saw temperatures pass 32C.
However the weekend could be a washout in parts of the UK.
The Met Office expect heavy rainfall in Northern Ireland on Saturday which spreads to Scotland and North West England later in the afternoon but ‘with many areas dry, central and southern parts probably seeing some warm sunny intervals’.

Alex Deakin, Met Office UK said: “Saturday will see fairly heavy showers in some places. Rainfall is coming from an area of low pressure slowly edging towards the UK on Friday.
“There will be rain broadly speaking moving from West to East.
“Before it arrives some bright spells in eastern parts of England and we are likely to see some sunny spells in Northern Ireland and South Wales ad South East England with temperature highs of 24C in the South East.
“Otherwise a lot of cloud and rain and it will probably feel quite cool.”

On Sunday persistent heavy rainfall is expected in North East England and Scotland with Yorkshire, Lincolnshire expected to see some torrential rain in parts.”
However despite cooler temperatures on Monday morning and some scattered rainfall – most of the UK will brighten up and experience warm sunshine expected to last until next weekend.
Alex Deakin explained: “Unsettled weather will be pulling away during Sunday and high pressure will be following on from behind. Still some showers on Monday but that high may well dominate for much of next week.
“There are signs of drier and sunnier weather coming next week. Not promising the temperatures to jump up significantly but it will be a drier week and a sunnier week.
