Blackpool weekend weather forecast: take a look at our round-up and check the tide times for the resort

It’s been a very wet few days. Yesterday the skies opened up for most of the day, and this morning wasn’t much better, with showers and dark clouds looming.

Although we had a few hours without rain this morning, by lunchtime the heavier showers will set in and not stop until later in the evening.

It will be a fairly windy evening, with gusts reaching over 30 miles per hour.

Check the tide times before heading to the beach this weekend.

On Saturday, the weather will improve a little, with a cloudy morning on the horizon and sunny spells throughout the day.

If you are planning a day trip to the resort, Saturday seems like the ideal day – on Sunday the rain will return in the afternoon after a dry and dull start to the day.

Maximum temperatures are expected to reach 11°C on Saturday and Sunday.

Looking ahead to next week, we can expect Monday and Tuesday to have similar conditions, with a dry start to the day but light showers around lunchtime.

If you’re planning a beach visit this weekend, remember to check the tide times before you go – rain and wind can be dangerous conditions, especially on our beaches.

If you need emergency assistance on the beach, call 999 and ask for the coast guard.
