The UK are forecast to enjoy a weekend of "wall-to-wall" sunshine before a band of rain moves in from Monday.
Despite temperatures plunging below freezing overnight in parts of northern England and Scotland tonight, sunny spells are due to break through over the weekend.
Met Office meteorologist John Griffiths said the UK experienced a cloudy Friday which was dry weather for most.
But he said temperatures did not reach the highs seen earlier this week, when it soared to 16C in parts of London and the south-east.
Mr Griffiths said that by Saturday afternoon much of the country will be enjoying “wall-to-wall sunshine”.
He added: “We’re looking at maximum temperatures of about 9C in the north, in places like Glasgow, Newcastle.
“It will be a little warmer in London, but only by a degree or so.
"Patchy cloud in the morning and rather breezy early on. Winds will ease off a bit into the afternoon.
“There will be sunny spells around, and will be largely dry for most, and again probably not too much in the way of frost apart from in north-western areas.”
In the south of England, including London and the Midlands, there will be maximum temperatures of about 10C.

Weather Outlook's forecast reads: "Saturday looks dry in virtually all of the country.
"Sunny spells develop but during the afternoon cloud amounts may increase in central and western areas. An easterly wind makes it feel quite cold.
"The dry weather continues on Sunday and there should be a reasonable amount of sunshine.
"It will be quite cold in central and eastern regions but in the west temperatures edge up a little.
"Frost will be widespread early and late."
For most Monday will remain dry.
But lighter winds overnight on Sunday mean there will be more widespread frost.
