Goodbye sun as a chilly wind blows in.

THE West Midlands heatwave is set to end when temperatures plunge in a biting northerly wind.

Sizzling Birmingham basked in temperatures of 80F on Sunday with the mercury climbing to 75F yesterday as a hot blast of air from Africa swept in.

However, it is all set to change this weekend with temperatures dropping to just 53F (12C) as cloud blows in from the north.

A band of rain will bring cooler conditions in Birmingham and the Black Country today as the heatwave ends with a shiver. The rain is likely to be heavy at times, and may turn thundery. It will feel quite cold compared to the recent Mediterranean-like conditions.

It is set to stay cool throughout the week with occasional sunny spells and winds strengthening coupled with the odd shower.

However, the region will really begin to feel the chill on Saturday when thermometers struggle to reach double figures centigrade.

It will be chilly and breezy with scattered showers. There will be more rain on Sunday and it will feel cold out of the sun.

Temperatures will again struggle to rise about 12C (53F) but it will feel much colder in the wind chill.
