Following this week's unsettled weather of delightfully sunny yet gloomy and overcast some days, the weekend has a much brighter and warmer outlook. 

Forecaster Bournemouth and Poole Weather has said that although this morning, Friday, 11 June, started off overcast and mild - there should be 'rapid improvement' throughout the weekend.

The forecaster also predicts that Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole will be blessed with 'wall to wall' sunshine throughout the weekend with highs of 26 to 28C.

However, forecaster Dorset Snow predicts the weather will not be quite as warm and glorious. 

They said: "The weekend isn’t looking quite as warm as initially expected, but we should still temperatures rise into the low 20c with light winds and next to no cloud cover.

"It will be even warmer on Monday with temperatures into the mid 20s with wall to wall sunshine once again."
