Looking at the latter part of the working week now, it's looking partly cloudy across the region apart from in Southport where it remains sunny. Could see a spot of rain. Highs of 29°C.

And looking at the five day forecast now, as the week goes on though it will remain fairly warm for us, we could see more cloud cover than we have been experiencing these past few days.

However as we move into the weekend we could be seeing some heavy showers. By Sunday, it's looking partly cloudy though it should stay dry, highs of 18°C.
