It should be a cooler overnight as it will be dry with clear spells and lows dropping to around 11C.
Dry to start on Thursday morning with sunny spells but getting cloudier into the afternoon.
Highs of 16C tomorrow.
Here's this afternoon's forecast:
Carlisle United have posted highlights on their YouTube channel from last night's Checkatrade Trophy game against Oldham that ended in a 5 - 4 win for the Bluebirds.
It puts Carlisle United top of Group B and they face Blackburn Rovers Academy in October.
If you're not quite up to speed with the changes to this year's EFL Trophy, BBC Sport have written about the new format and some of the controversy from fans boycotting the competition over Premier League teams.
Politicians "disastrously let down" people in the UK during the EU referendum campaign, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has said.
During a speech in Manchester to think tank IPPR, the MP for Westmorland and Lonsdale said that both sides of the debate "battered" voters who were "lied to" with "dodgy statistics".
He said that it had left the country bitterly divided as a result, with politicians abandoning voters to their fate.
The Cumbrian MP also stressed that he would continue to campaign to remain a member of the European Union, but added he knew Leave voters and understood why they wanted to vote that way.
Want to study the route that some of the world's top cyclists will be following through Cumbria on Monday 5 September when the Tour of Britain comes to Cumbria?
The race will officially start from outside the old Town Hall in Carlisle at 11:00 before passing through Penrith, Pooley Bridge, Hesket Newmarket, Cockermouth, Grasmere, Ambleside and Bowness on Windermere before finishing on the steep Beast Banks in Kendal.
There'll be sprint sections when the fastest racers will go all out for extra points in Hesket Newmarket, Cockermouth and Grasmere and the mountain climbers will be competing during ascents of Whinlatter Pass, Chestnut Hill in Keswick and The Struggle at Kirkstone Pass.
A consultation has been extended into the future of policing in the county.
The consultation now ends on Wednesday 7 September 2016.
We've asked Cumbria Police for more information about why the consultation has been extended but so far they've provided this statement:

An independent panel has recommended a small increase in the amount of money that should be paid to some Cumbrian councillors.
Allowances for the Council Leader, currently Labour's Stuart Young, and other members of his top team, should be increased slightly according to Cumbria County Council's Independent Renumeration Panel.
Last year, increases were recommended but councillors chose to take a smaller pay rise.
The panel also recommended that the allowance that can be claimed towards hiring carers for family members while on council business should be increased to the National Living Wage (£7.20 per hour).
The plan would cost the council an extra £16,000 per year and will be considered by county councillors at a meeting next Wednesday.
Cumbrian broadcaster Melvyn Bragg has already been making his views clear about the sale of a Lake District farm to the National Trust but, today, he's also calling on the Government to follow Team GB's model for Olympic success and invest more in the North of England.

Some more on the story we brought you yesterday - The broadcaster and peer Melvyn Bragg has accused the National Trust of ignoring the interests of Cumbrians living in Borrowdale after the charity bought acres of farmland, without the accompanying farmhouse.
Local farmers fear that it could hurt the area's farming system as Thorneythwaite will no longer be run by a farmer who lives and works on the land.
Speaking on BBC Radio Cumbria this morning, the Labour peer said that the charity should never have bought the land:

People in Cumbria are much more likely to have access to emergency devices that can re-start a heart following a cardiac arrest than two years ago, according to Cumbria County Council.
The devices can be found mounted on to walls near pubs, in village post boxes and other public places.
The Lanes Shopping Centre in Carlisle has one of the devices and Ian Proudfoot from the centre says that medical skills aren't needed to use one:
"The defib machine is a very easy and simple machine to use. Anybody can use it. It is almost idiot-proof in its operation."
