SCATTERED showers are expected across north Worcestershire and the Black Country in the early part of this evening, with rain easing later on.

Outbreaks of rain will again move in from the south towards midnight, and there will be some heavy bursts during the early hours.

These will ease by morning, however, with temperatures staying above 6°C.

Looking ahead to Friday, expect a grey, wet and windy start to the day, with skies gradually clearing as we reach the afternoon.

More rain will return in the evening, with temperatures reaching highs of 13°C.
