Gloucestershire weather outlook with Ian Thomas
HERE we go again as this summer carries on disappointingly at least so far.
As far as the weekend weather goes, Saturday will offer the best of any dry weather with some sunny spells but windy at times before cloud spills in from the west later with rain arriving by tomorrow.
So Sunday looks like a rather wet day with longer spells of rain or showers.
Temperatures throughout will go no higher than 15-17C (59-63F) at best and 9-11C (48-52F) overnight. Current indications are that it will be less wet at first next week but more rain expected later on.

This weekend marks mid-summer's day (24) and this June has been almost anything but.
As if you need reminding, rain has been the predominant feature across the whole of England and Wales with only Scotland and the northern isles escaping.
Here are some totals for Gloucestershire up to 7pm Monday. Nailsworth 87mm (3.4in), Elmbridge 89mm (3.5in), Dursley 94mm(3.74in) and the two highest are Bristol and Nailsworth jointly with 104mm (4.1in).
This is the wettest June since June 2007 and the way it is heading I think some places may well set a new record. I recorded 149mm (5.86in) in 2007, by far our wettest since records started in 1971.
The first 12 days were dry and sunny but the rains then set in big time. During the following 10 days, 55mm (2.16in) fell but June 25 took the honours as the wettest day. Another 55mm fell in less than 12 hours with flooding around the county. This set a precedent for what was to come in July. However, June 2007 was on the warm side with an average temperature of 16.4C, slightly above the long term average.
