Midlanders can expect a damp and dreary weekend, according to the latest forecasts from the Met Office.

In the West Midlands, showers - and even hailstones - are expected throughout the day. These will mostly ease up during the evening, but there will be more rain tomorrow, particularly in the north of the region.

In the East Midlands, clearing skies will suddenly give way to heavy rain and thunder this afternoon. It will feel humid during the day, but the rain will clear during the evening, bringing some brighter spells. Tomorrow will be a cooler, fresher day but there is a chance of more rain on Sunday afternoon.
