THE weather in Winchester is set to take a turn for the best – and then the worst almost straight away.

Many places across the country are expecting a heatwave, with highs of around 30 degrees.

Today (June 25), the forecast is not far from the national trend; 29 degrees with sunshine all day.

But on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, the rain is set to pour down. On all three days, the temperature is still expected to reach around 22 degrees.
