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.

According to the Met Office, today will see rainy weather persist to about 8pm, when England is due to face Scotland at Wembley Stadium in the Euro 2020 tournament.
