After three months of rain, it seems the UK's summer is finally about to start.
Forecasters predict that after a few more days of wind and rain, a "more usual" weather pattern should arrive at the weekend.
Widespread flooding, the wettest period of April to June on record and more heavy rain so far this month has been caused by the jet stream settling unusually far south.
But now experts believe it is on its way back north, a move which could bring more traditional summer weather in time for the start of the Olympic Games.
On Thursday and Friday there will be a mixture of sunshine and showers, with a risk of the odd heavier shower in central and eastern parts of England.
Dry and bright weather will arrive at the weekend while the start of next week will be breezy with rain in the north of England and Scotland, but dry and fine in the rest of the UK and gradually getting warmer.
