Will the sun shine in Lincoln this weekend?

It may not be quite summer weather just yet but sunny intervals are looking likely this weekend.

According to the Met Office any showers from earlier in the day on Friday will fade away by the evening to leave it mostly dry with clear spells.

The odd shower may still linger on a chilly night with temperatures dropping from around nine degrees at 7pm to seven degrees at 10pm.

Light showers could change to sunny intervals by lunchtime on Saturday, May 11, with temperatures rising up to 12 degrees. It is expected to be a mostly sunny day. Some cloud may bubble up and deliver a few showers in the middle of the day.
