Britain will bask in summer temperatures this weekend, according to the latest BBC weather forecast. The UK will see temperatures soar from -6C on Saturday morning to 18C on Sunday afternoon, a jump of 24C. BBC meteorologist Nick Miller said that a warm, sunny weekend is in store for many Britons, which will be the first weekend in England since coronavirus restrictions eased across the region.

He noted that an Atlantic weather front could bring rain to Scotland and Northern Ireland across the weekend.

Mr Miller told BBC viewers: “It is yet another cold frosty start this morning, with another fine day following, as high pressure remains in charge for most of us.

“Elsewhere, because of the high pressure, it will remain dry with a mix of cloudy and sunny weather.

“Eastern Scotland, England and Wales will have another cold frosty night going into the weekend.”

He continued: “Overnight on Saturday, these areas will still have a widespread frost to come, similar to last night where temperatures dropped to -6C.

“High pressure is clinging on for England and Wales this weekend, so there is plenty of sunshine to come this weekend, some patchy clouds, and fine days.

“Temperatures will mainly stay in the range of 10C to 14C on Saturday.

“On Sunday, the weather fronts do make some progress into Scotland and Northern Ireland, with more cloud around here and some greater chances of seeing outbreaks of rain, particularly the further west you are.

“Through central, eastern and southern parts of England, plenty of Sunday sunshine and without that northeasterly breeze hitting the north-east coast, temperatures will warmer here.

“Generally across England temperatures will be a little bit higher, up to 18C.”

The weekend warmth comes after a bitingly cold week with frost and snow and sub-zero temperatures.

The balmy weather comes on the first weekend after restrictions for pubs and shops were lifted on Monday in England.

Met Office forecaster Aidan McGivern said: “Another cold morning on Friday to wake up to but for all of us it’s going to be a dry day with sunny spells, especially during the morning.

“For the vast majority it’s just looking dry with spells of sunshine and it’s going to feel a little warmer compared to previous days.”

WXCharts show an increase of 4C above what is typically expected for this time of the year.
