Sunday will see the city remain overcast – but no rain is forecast so far.

But Monday will see an improvement to the weather, with clear blue skies throughout the day.

The good weather is due to arrive just as lockdown rules begin to ease, allowing groups of six people or two households to meet outside.

Golf courses and tennis courts are also due to reopen.
