And Friday is when the weather goes downhill, if the predictions are correct. With a high of just 14C predicted and the chance of rain for most of the day, the umbrellas and hooded coats might be making an appearance.

Heavy rain is forecast for the morning, with the chance of thundery showers earlier in the day. But don't worry, as it will soon clear and the city will be graced with glorious sunshine for the Bank Holiday.

Highs of 20C are forecast for Saturday, although it will be overcast, with Sunday being the stand-out by far. Prolonged sunny spells and highs of 21C on Sunday mean that the shorts and vests should be able to come put of the wardrobe again. Monday looks like being slightly cooler and cloudier, with highs of 20C predicted.
