Fortunately, the rain doesn’t seem set to dampen the spirits of residents and visitors looking to get back to the beach after bouts of rain and dreary clouds since last weekend.

It will be dry overnight, according to the Met Office, with the sun making a welcome reappearance from tomorrow morning.

Temperatures on Saturday will reach highs of 20C, with some scattered clouds throughout the afternoon.

Sunday will be another sunny morning, with highs of 20C and a few more clouds by lunchtime. This is not good news for hay fever and allergy sufferers – Sunday is expected to be the first day of “very high” pollen counts, which will continue until Tuesday.

Looking ahead to next week, dry weather will continue into Thursday, with sunny intervals to be seen each day with a few cloudy spells.

Temperatures will reach up to 20°C until Wednesday, before dropping slightly to 19°C on Wednesday and Thursday.

Met Office forecast in full:

Friday: Heavy rain all day, expected to ease at 10 p.m. before a dry night. Maximum temperature 14°C.

Saturday: Mainly sunny day, with a few cloudy periods. Maximum temperature 20°C.

Sunday: A sunny morning, before the clouds set in by lunchtime. Maximum temperature 20°C.

Outlook for Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday:

Similar conditions for the three days, sunny intervals until Wednesday with cloudy periods, but no rain. Maximum temperatures between 20°C on Monday and Tuesday, before dropping to 19°C on Wednesday.
