High pressure may be in charge of our weather but it doesn't necessarily mean wall to wall sunshine. The gardens will be happy though as we've got rain on the way. It's moving in from the north and will arrive in our region tomorrow. As for today it's a brighter picture.

There is rather a lot of cloud around but also some breaks giving us decent sunny spells. Most locations today will remain dry but there are a few showers heading south from Yorkshire that are most likely to hit the coastal areas of Lincolnshire. Temperatures will reach around 20/21c and the winds will be light too. All-in-all a pleasant afternoon ahead.

It will remain mostly dry through this evening – just the small risk of a light shower. Temperatures in towns and cities will stay in double figures, whereas in the countryside we can expect lows of 8/9c.

Tomorrow will get off to a promising start with some bright spells but sadly it won't last as the cloud will build through the morning and patchy rain will spread south through the afternoon. It will feel a touch cooler than today too.

More rain is forecast for Friday it will travel west to east hanging around in the East Midlands for much of the afternoon but it will turn drier and brighter in the West Midlands. It will feel warm with highs of 20c.

Saturday looks to be dry and bright and again feeling warm. Good news if you are heading to Nottingham for Armed Forces Day.

Pollen levels will remain moderate to high through the next few days.
