Friday will be sunny, particularly in England and Wales with the weekend bringing bright sunshine and temperatures as high as 25C as Brits bask in one last weekend of sunshine.

Met Office weather forecaster Becky Mitchell said: "The warm weather is being brought in by a band of high pressure.

"That'll continue into the weekend and looks like it's going to stay well into next week too."

The bright and sunny weekend will be enjoyed by revellers across the UK, with a few remaining showers in Scotland easing off by lunchtime on Sunday and above average temperatures all round.

Ex-BBC and Met Office forecaster John Hammond of weathertrending said: “Temperatures well into the 20s are quite feasible after September 16.

“It could well become quite warm. There are indications high pressure will build.

And Met Office forecaster Marco Petagna said: “It turns warmer and humid as the remnants of Dorian and Gabrielle feed tropical air to the UK.

“It turns warmer still at the weekend and early next week with high pressure, with 25C possible in the South.”

The good news comes after it was revealed that the UK was in for an Indian summer in the coming weeks.

The mercury is soaring back up as a plume of Saharan air follows the fallout from Hurricane Dorian.

High pressure bringing heat from north Africa to the UK will see brilliant autumn heat for at least the next week.
