The hot summer weather is set to return this week - but prepare for a few thundery showers this morning.

After a weekend of rain and downpours, the mercury is set to rise as the weather settles throughout the week.

Phil Garner, forecaster at Weatherquest, said; “It’s a fairly settled start to the day.

“We have some thundery rain coming in from the west but we expect it to clear from 9am today (Tuesday).

“From then on it will be fine and dry with sunshine coming through.
