Stoke-on-Trent heatwave to end on Friday – with weekend washout on the way


Our gripes over the blistering heat may well turn quickly into a fond memory as the weekend is set to be an absolute washout – with two days of rain.

In stark contrast to what we have been experiencing this week in North Staffordshire, metereologists with the BBC say the weather will certainly be turning with the rain starting to fall at around 3am on Saturday and continuing until around midnight on Sunday.

And those few hours from midnight should probably be enjoyed with the downpours to resume on Monday morning and carry on until about 6pm that night. As it stands, Tuesday is looking marginally better with rain confined to the mid-afternoon and evening.
