Dover is set to survive the worst of this week's weather relatively unscathed – despite a yellow weather warning issued by the Met Office for Kent.

Conditions look like they will stay unstable and unpredictable heading through the week – with some improvements on the way – but Dover is set to avoid the worst of the wet weather.

Though the lowest tier of weather warning that can be issued by the Met Office, yellow weather warnings still carry a good deal of importance – as Kent will be battered by June's second wave of storms.

However, Dover looks to be in for a sunny afternoon today (June 28) as the weather warning remains in place across the rest of the county until 10pm.

Temperatures will remain warm, if somewhat muggy, at around 20C, though the cloud cover that will span most of the county will mean that today's lows will only dip to 15C at night.

The threat of rain is set to stick around into Tuesday and Wednesday, though neither are predicted to have weather extreme enough to warrant a warning.

As the week goes on, scattered showers and patches of sunshine will see temperatures hover around that 20C mark, though without the sustained sunshine of early-to-mid June – and patchy showers scattered in between.

The weekend looks to be warm, with highs of 21C on Saturday, but not necessarily totally dry quite yet, with scattered patches of rain likely.

The Met Office's yellow weather warning predicts that many parts of Kent will miss the worst today – but some road flooding might be expected.

Kent and Dover's detailed weather forecast for the next five days:
