As Gareth Southgate's men prepare for the finale to the Euro 2020 football tournament thoughts will already be turning to where to watch the country's biggest football match in 55 years and what the weather will be like.

According to the latest Met Office forecast, there is a risk of heavy, thundery showers throughout our region over the weekend, so football fans planning to watch the match in a pub beer garden might want to make an indoor back up plan just in case.

Today will start largely cloudy with a few residual overnight showers.
