Will we see any sun this week?

In the week which will see the reopening of some pubs, restaurants, cinemas and other leisure facilities – as well as the relaxing of social distancing rules to one metre - will the sunshine be on our side?

According to Met Office forecasters temperatures are set to be much cooler than last week (which saw highs of 30C) and we should expect mostly cloudy conditions.

But there is some hope, with sunny intervals expected on Saturday.
