Mixed weather with sunshine and spells of showers

By Lucy Verasamy: ITV Weather Presenter

Mixed weather today with cloud giving way to brighter skies and spells of sunshine but showers will get going with thundery downpours likely.

The Pennines, Midlands and south-east will be most prone to a soaking.

Perfect rainbow spotting weather but temperatures on the low side for mid August-again - especially in the breeze across the north.
