Met Office forecasts Birmingham to be drenched – this is when sun returns

Birmingham has been hit by dreary and drab weather on Tuesday, with the mercury plunging across the Midlands as the UK braces for a month’s worth of rain in 24 hours.

The city isn’t in the midst of a yellow weather warning from the agency, thankfully, but the weather has definitely taken a noticeable downturn on the second day of the working week.

Tuesday promises to be “very wet across the region with steady rain for much of the day”, according to forecasters at the Met Office agency.

Meteorologists for the service expect “temperatures feeling cooler, especially when under any persistent and occasionally heavy rain.”

“Conditions should begin to dry out from the southwest of the region by late afternoon,” they also warn.

On Tuesday, the mercury will reach highs of just 9C before outbreaks of rain “should slowly fade through the evening for all”.

But this will be leaving a murky but mostly dry night, though the odd spot of rain is still possible.

On Tuesday night, the mercury will drop to as low as 5C – so when can we expect a return to the sunshine which has bathed the city in recent days?

Well, Wednesday promises sunny spells but also spells of rain too.

After a cloudy start, a further band of heavy rain will travel northeastwards through the afternoon with some sunny spells to follow.

 Breezy to begin, though easing through the afternoon as the temperature reaches the mid-teens.

The Met Office outlook for Thursday to Saturday reads: “Remaining unsettled on Thursday, with rain clearing to locally thundery showers, which continue Friday. Saturday looks drier, though more rain arrives overnight. Breezy at times, though temperatures recovering to normal.”
