From heatwaves to torrential downpours, we’ve had a little bit of everything so far this summer.

But if you’re hoping to take some time off and enjoy a day at the beach, a country walk or any other fun outdoor activity, you’re going to have to plan ahead this week so you don’t get caught out by the rain.

Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday are forecast to be the driest day of the week – although it will also be little bit cooler and cloudier.
