According to the Met Office, there will be a mixture of sunny spells and showers across the country on Sunday, with parts of eastern, central and southern England being fairly cloudy.

The weather is expected to be warm until the evening, especially in the east and southeast where temperatures are expected to reach 20C.

The beginningof next week will be similar with sunny spells and showers but the Met Office has warned of heavy showers at times "with a risk of thunderstorms."

The Met Office's outlook for Monday to Wednesday says: "Generally unsettled with a mixture of sunny spells and showers, as well as some more prolonged periods of rain.

"Some heavy bursts likely at times with a risk of thunderstorms."

Brits will be able to have a break from the wintry weather tomorrow.

On Saturday the day has been fairly wet with torrential rain and gales across the country.

The Met Office said that parts of the Brecon Beacons in S Wales could see 125 mm of rain today.

But this didn't stop Brits, who were determined to enjoy their day- even under umbrellas.

After months of lockdown people boldly decided to go ahead with their plans and meet outside with friends in pub gardens.

The Met Office warned of "persistent rain, heavy at times, may cause some difficult driving conditions and travel disruption".

Rain has been blighting almost all areas of the country, moving from the south to the north over the day.

The Environment Agency issued a flood alert as two rivers in the Midlands rose following a night of heavy rain.

And five flood alerts are out in South Wales where rain has bucketed down too.

With more rain forecast, the Environment Agency said people should check the 'alert' website frequently, just in case.
