Saturday, June 25
Forecasters say we can expect to see sunshine for most of Saturday with temperatures between 12°C and 19°C.
The warm weather will hit a peak at around midday, with the highest temperatures continuing until 5pm.
Have that suncream ready between 12pm and 3pm, as UV levels will be most high then too.
If you’re going out in the late afternoon or early evening, there’s a 40% chance of showers from 5pm.
Best to pack an umbrella!
Sunday, June 26
It will be mild again on Sunday, with temperatures between 12°C and 18°C.
If you’re hoping to make the most of the sunshine, you’re better being up early with cloudy conditions creeping in by lunchtime.
At time of writing, there’s a less than 10% chance of rain throughout most of the day – but that creeps up to 40% from 4pm.
Met Office forecasters predict the UV levels to remain high on Sunday and it’s bad news for hayfever suffers with a high pollen count too.
