After yet another bout of rain, summer is set to make a return
Cloudless blue skies and sunny spells are on the cards for the end of the week, according to Met Office chiefs.
Following the recent stormy weather with heavy rain and floods, brighter, warmer weather is just around the corner.
Conditions are expected to begin picking-up tomorrow across the Westcountry and by the end of the week proper summer conditions are likely to surface.
However, today more rain was expected across parts of Devon and Cornwall with thick, dull cloud accompanied by cool temperatures.

A spokesman for Exeter-based Met Office, said while showers would persist in parts for the next couple of days they should have evaporated by Friday.
He said: "After (Tuesday) we should be in for a period of settled and dry weather with bright spells across the South West.
"Drier conditions will be seen particularly in the latter part of the week.
"By the middle of the week temperatures in Plymouth will be the most favourable at 21 degrees Celsius. Across Cornwall temperatures will be a degree or two less.
"Coastal areas will be slightly cooler than inland."
By Thursday and Friday most parts of Devon and Cornwall will be mostly dry.
The spokesman continued: "By Friday top temperatures will again be in Plymouth at 23 degrees.
"Generally across the region we're expecting more blue skies and higher temperatures that should make for a nice change after the recent mixed bag of weather we've had."
A break from the seemingly incessant bursts of rain will come as welcome relief to many parts of the Westcountry.
Up until yesterday Environment Agency bosses had flood warnings in place across Devon and Cornwall.
In Devon warnings were issued around a number of spots including the rivers Torridge, Waldon and Lew, including Black Torrington, Milton Damerel and Hatherleigh.
