It's a soggy Saturday across the capital. Outbreaks of rain on and off through the day.

The rain turning quite heavy in places with the risk of some torrential thundery downpours.

It's not the best start to the Bank Holiday weekend but things will gradually improve over the weekend.

The wet weather gradually clears through tomorrow and there after it will be drier and brighter.

Monday look really nice, sunny and pleasantly warm.

Today's rain is no doubt likely to cause disruption to play at the Ashes.

It will also be pretty wet at times for the Challenge Cup final taking place at Wembley this afternoon.

If you are planning to head down to the Notting Hill Carnival this weekend, the forecast for tomorrow is better and better still for Monday.

A word of warning, today's rain carries with it a Met Office weather warning.

The heavy downpours where they occur could result in some localised flooding and difficult driving conditions with surface spray on the roads.
