A spokesperson for the Met Office said: "A cloudy day with rain at times, this becoming persistent and occasionally heavy across the southwest, especially in the afternoon.

"Eastern Borders seeing the best of the drier spells. Blustery southwesterly winds. Maximum temperature 18 °C."

It's not great news if you're looking forward to a weekend spent outdoors.

Saturday is set to be a much more unsettled day with longer spells of lighter rain, with Sunday also looking wet and miserable for the majority of the day.
