Adam Bell, forecaster for Weatherquest, said it is going to be "a lot drier" over the weekend, with highs of around 18-19C and plenty of sunshine making for perfect picnic weather.

It comes after a drizzly few days across the region, with heavy downpours prompting many to question whether summer had ended prematurely.

Mr Bell said: "It is going to be a lot drier over the weekend, with similar highs as today - 18-19C, maybe 20C tomorrow afternoon.
