VE Day is set to sizzle as temperatures could reach 25C in the south, with some showers in places. The warmer climate forecast for today, comes as lockdown remains in place, and the UK is urged to remain at home.
Met Office spokeswoman Nichola Maxey said: “Friday is going to be quite a warm day.
“Saturday will see something similar with highs of 25C in the south of the country.
“Most places will be a nice warm day in the mid-20s.”
However, this weekend will see a weather transition, as Saturday heats up in the southern half of the country but is at risk of heavy showers in central regions.
Scotland will see less balmy conditions, with rain moving southwards and over the mountains that see it turn to snow as Arctic air arrives.
Sunday is where the weather will U-turn, as outbreaks of rain in the north push southwards and become patchier.
This will bring much colder temperatures as we head into next week.
Scattered wintry showers will develop in the northeast on Sunday, and there is also a risk of thundery showers in the south of England.
A forecast on Weather Outlook said: “This weekend a major change takes place.
“Saturday will be very warm in the southern half of the country but there is a risk of heavy showers in central regions.
“In Scotland, a band of rain move southwards and over the mountains, it turns to snow as Arctic air arrives.
“During Sunday outbreaks of rain in the north push southwards and become patchier. Brighter and much colder conditions follow on. Scattered wintry showers developing in the northeast.
“There is also a risk of thundery showers in the south and south-west of England.
“Later on it could turn more changeable with showery rain returning.”
Night-time frosts are expected to be a regular occurrence next week, as the weather reverts to winter.
Temperatures may gradually recover as high pressure builds in from the west.
Later on, it could turn more changeable with showery rain returning.
