“But with barely a cloud in the sky the sunburn risk is quite high. Everybody should make sure that they cover up and have a hat and some sun cream.
“Saturday will be mainly dry with a small chance of a light shower later in the day. Showers are expected overnight on Saturday and into Sunday morning.”
