A Met Office spokesperson said: ’Next weekend looks unsettled with showers or longer spells of rain, heaviest and most frequent for some western areas.

‘Strong winds look set to accompany these wet conditions, again strongest in the west. Temperatures will vary around average for the time of year though the west will be mainly rather cool. There will, however, still be some drier and sunny interludes.

‘Changeable weather will probably continue in the second week of July although the rain may become more confined to the west and northwest with the best of any drier, brighter weather more likely across the south and east of the UK.

‘Into the following weekend there are signs that the weather may become drier, more settled and warmer again, particularly for southern and many central parts.’
