Wednesday's weather - thundery showers later!

The dry and sunny weather will be very short lived with more unsettled conditions to come over the next 48 hours.

As for today, well it's good news for most, we have another bright day ahead of us and it will stay mostly dry.

There's just a very small risk of catching a light shower in Derbyshire and Staffordshire.

The sunshine really does have some oomph this time of year, so temperatures will rise rapidly and it will feel slightly warmer than yesterday with highs of 22 Celsius.

Tonight though, it goes wrong as a band of rain spreads from the south-west to north-east.

It will travel through overnight and hang around tomorrow with some heavy, thundery downpours expected.

We are expecting it to stay unsettled with more heavy showers on Friday, the wind will pick up as well for the end of the week.

Looking ahead to the weekend and the showers will continue into Saturday.

Temperatures will fall slightly in the more unsettled weather with highs of around 17/18 Celsius.
