According to the Met Office, there is expected to be a mixed weather picture for the next few days, which has forecast some sunny spells to enjoy but some showers to dodge.
However, for those seeking the heat, the Met Office confirmed that temperatures are “trending up” as we move towards the start of next week.
For many, the first weekend of August offers the perfect opportunity to unwind after a hard week at work and Friday is expected to remain largely dry and light throughout the day.
It was a mostly sunny and comfortable start to the afternoon, with light showers expected to subside and dry conditions expected to persist through the remainder of the evening for those heading to our towns and cities to eat or drink sustain a maximum temperature of about 19 °C.
The Met Office said there will be periods of clear spells overnight, with temperatures set to drop towards dawn on Saturday ahead of some cloud and patchy rain in the north and west of the province.
A spokesman added: “Saturday is expected to be mostly cloudy but the good news is that it will be mainly dry with only the occasional chance of rain showers.
“It will feel quite warm in the east, but initially light winds will become more moderate from the west later in the day. We expect a maximum temperature of around 20°C.
“In summary, there may be a few rain showers in the morning, but it will become progressively drier and sunnier in the afternoon.
“Sunday will be mostly cloudy and dry. However, there may be occasional light rains.
“On Monday there will be early sunshine, but in the afternoon it will be rather cloudy with a few light rain showers.
“However, temperatures are trending upwards over the next few days, although it will remain quite windy at times, especially when we get to Tuesday of next week.”
