“On Tuesday, we have a warm front pushing up leading to some outbreaks of rain,” said Ms Gavin. The day will be duller with temperatures of 17C to 20C and light to moderate breezes.

There will be no let-up on Wednesday with “more persistent and heavy spells of rain with fresh southern winds” and temperatures are expected to reach up to 19C.

The good news is that the mercury is set to soar again as August comes to a close.

Early indications suggest that while there may still be some showers, it will be warm and sunny for the weekend.

The forecaster said: “On Thursday, temperatures will start to increase but it won’t be completely dry. Friday is the driest of the days, with temperatures up to 25C.”
