Rain is expected to lash down on Kent this weekend.

Temperatures could also drop to the coolest they've been in recent days, a full 10C lower in some parts of the country.

The latest deluge comes as Kent has suffered from yet another week of no unbroken sunshine.

However, that could soon change with temperatures set to soar into the 20Cs, as the Mirror reports.

Met Office forecaster Clare Nasir said of today's weather forecast: "Turning a lot cooler on Friday across the northern half of the UK with cloud, rain and a brisk breeze.

"Showery further south through Friday.

"Certainly a showery start to the day across more southern areas and to the north east."

The miserable weekend weather is then set to make way for the sun's sizzling return next week.

Temperatures could shoot into the 20Cs across Kent next week ending the heavily-anticipated wait for some unbroken sunshine.

The BBC's forecast for the first few weeks of July states: "Toward mid-July the pattern is likely to be rather changeable with mixed dry and warm spells and an increased chance of a brief heatwave.

"The extent of high-pressure influence in western and northern Europe is the main source of uncertainty for the forecast.

"This would be a very warm pattern for the UK with a potential for heatwaves.”

Kent weather

Today

Rather dull and cloudy, with outbreaks of rain at first, clearing east through the morning.

Most parts drier with warm sunny spells by the afternoon, although the chance of the odd heavy shower then developing. Maximum temperature 22C.

Tonight

Daytime showers will soon ease through the evening to leave a largely dry night with clear spells.

Although some thicker cloud in the far west, could bring the odd shower. Minimum temperature 8C.

Saturday

A fine and dry day for most with warm sunny spells and light winds.

However, some thicker cloud will spread north later, bringing the chance of one or two showers. Maximum temperature 22C.

Outlook for Sunday to Tuesday

Often cloudy, but with spells of warm sunshine.

Chance of showers spreading north from the English channel, perhaps thundery, which could align to give more some persistent rain at times.
