After weeks of glorious sunshine, it was inevitable the warm weather was going to end sometime.

With low river levels, dried-out gardens and a potential hosepipe ban, some may be glad to hear that the rain has arrived.

It’s not here for long though as the week starts off wet and getting progressively drier.

Here’s a day-by-day breakdown of how the weather looks this week:
