The showers are set to carry on until 8pm, with only a few short breaks throughout the day.

Highs are forecast to get to 19C, meaning it won’t be too cold, but the constant rain and overhead cloud will make Monday a gloomy day.

There’s not much rain forecast for the rest of the week.

Tuesday will remain cloudy and overcast with highs of 17C but is set to be dry throughout.
