Blackpool weekend weather forecast: Watch our roundup and check tide times for the resort

Here's the weekend weather forecast for Blackpool for May 21 to 23 - if you're visiting the coast, don't forget your umbrella!

Friday, 21st May 2021, 11:03 am

It has been a very wet couple of days. Yesterday, the heavens opened for most of the day, and this morning wasn't much better, with showers and dark clouds looming.

Although we had a couple of hours free of rain this morning, by lunchtime the heavier showers will set in and it won't stop until later on this evening.

It will be a fairly windy evening, with gusts reaching over 30 miles per hour.

Check the tide times before you head to the beach this weekend.

On Saturday, the weather will improve a little, with a cloudy morning on the horizon and sunny intervals throughout the day.

If you're planning a day trip to the resort, Saturday seems to be the ideal day - on Sunday rain will be back in the afternoon after a dry, dull start to the day.

Maximum temperatures are expected to reach 11°C on Saturday and Sunday.

Looking ahead to next week, we can expect both Monday and Tuesday to have similar conditions, with dry starts to the days but light showers creeping in by lunchtime.

If you're planning a visit to the beach this weekend, remember to check the tide times before you head out - rain and wind can be treacherous conditions, particularly on our beaches.

If you need emergency assistance on the beach, call 999 and ask for the coastguard.
