As we head into what should be one of the warmest months of the year, Worksop has suffered weeks of heavy rain with just a slither of sunshine here and there.

But according to the Met Office, things are set to improve from Thursday when the downpours will give way to a more seasonal temperature of 18C.

The Bank Holiday weekend is set to be glorious, with temperatues soaring to 19C by Sunday and non-stop sunny spells in a ‘mostly fine, dry period”.

The long-term outlook isn’t shaping up too badly either. In the Met Office's most up-to-date long range forecast up to Sunday, June 6, experts says we will see "mainly fine and settled conditions across the UK, with temperatures recovering".
