The warm temperatures and sunshine will feel like a distant memory as we head through the next few days with unsettled weather heading our way. Low pressure is to blame pulling in rain and giving us a strong wind too.

This afternoon will bring some heavy showers to the West Midlands - at first with a rumble of thunder. The air today is still humid but it is certainly not feeling as warm as yesterday with highs of 17/18c and a brisk wind too.

The heavy showers will transfer to the East Midlands this evening before it turns dry everywhere. It won't feel particularly cold with lows of around 7c.

Tomorrow there will be a few brighter spells first thing before showers develop through the morning.

Rain will push eastwards in the afternoon to all parts and it will be windy too.

A Yellow Warning has been issued for southern counties of The Midlands: Northamptonshire, Herefordshire, Shropshire, Worcestershire, Warwickshire, West Midlands Conurbation where gusts of 50mph are possible.

Friday and the weekend will be showery and unsettled and will remain fairly windy. Temperatures will fall just shy of where they should be so it will feel much cooler than last weekend.

POLLEN FORECAST

Tree pollen is very active at the moment. The unsettled conditions will mean levels will dip from high to moderate today and tomorrow.
