The weather this month has been particularly hit or miss thanks to a range of high pressure coming in from the south meaning heatwaves have disappeared as quickly as they've been forecast and thunderstorms have been frequent.

Unfortunately the outlook for the weekend doesn't seem to be picking up, with Somerset getting its fair share of cloud and rain.
