The Met Office expects a cloudy start to Saturday to be briefly replaced by sunshine at 9am.

Yet clouds are expected to return by mid-morning until nightfall although conditions are expected to remain dry.

Sunday, however, is a depressingly different story with light rain around 1pm likely to get heavier around 4pm-5pm and continue until nightfall.
