The weather has taken a turn for the worse

The heatwave that residents have been enjoying in recent weeks came to an end today as rain lashed down on the Fylde coast.

Strong wind and downpours are expected to continue for most of Saturday with the rain set to get heavier on Sunday.

But Lancashire has avoided the worst of the bad weather, with warnings in place across parts of the South.

And while it has got cooler, the temperature is still expected to be warm over the weekend, with highs of 20 degrees predicted on Sunday.

Looking ahead to next week, the weather is set to get drier after Monday, with temperatures in the low 20s.
