The Met Office issues yellow rain warning across Portsmouth as the city begins a wet weekend
THE hot and sunny weather is well and truly over as Portsmouth looks to the weekend – with a soggy couple of days ahead of us.
Earlier in the week, Portsmouth was enjoying highs of 24C as the city basked in glorious sunshine on Monday.
But this weekend calls for an umbrella rather than sunscreen, as showers are set to last across the next two days.
