See the forecast for their epic homecoming gig in Manchester this weekend.

This weekend, thousands of Courteeners fans will descend on Manchester's Emirates Old Trafford to see Liam Fray and co. play an epic homecoming gig.

But when it comes to whether lovers of the Not Nineteen Forever outfit will need sunnies or a brolly at the cricket ground on Saturday 27 May, the prognosis looks mixed.

As shown in this diagram on the Met Office's website, this weekend is going to be warm and humid, with the Modern Love rockers playing in highs of 21 degrees. 

But don't leave your umbrella at home just yet, as it's also set to be cloudy with a chance of rain.

Meanwhile, The Courteeners, their promoter and the venue have released statements assuring fans that the gig will go ahead following Monday's horrific terrorist attack at Manchester Arena.

While they've asked fans to allow extra time to travel the promoters have also urged punters to not bring "any form of pyro" to the gig.
