After conflicting reports throughout the week, it now looks as if we are going to get some sun this weekend after all.

This Saturday is set to be a scorcher - with temperatures due to hit 29C in some parts of the country.

While the North West will sadly experience a band of rain, the South East can expect some very hot weather, with a risk of thundery showers in places.

The forecast for the capital on Saturday

The warm weather is due to a band of air that has been moving up from the continent - after a series of heat waves on the mainland.

Temperatures in the capital, Kent, Sussex and Essex are expected to reach the mid to late twenties, while the south coast will hit the 20 mark.

The midlands will be warm too, while Wales, Scotland and the North East will be slightly cooler at around 18C.

Time to crack the BBQ out people - but you better make the most of it, as Sunday we are in for some serious showers.
