The Meteorological service said that after a “fresh start” there would be “plenty of sunshine”. Meteorologist Aidan McGivern confirmed that temperatures would initially be low early on Saturday before rising.
He said: “So we’re looking at overnight lows 5 to 9 Celsius, perhaps a little lower in some sheltered parts of the countryside.
“But a bright start despite a fresh feel first thing Saturday, plenty of sunny skies around and temperatures soon rising as a result.
“Now we’re going to pull in a bit more cloud to the end of Edgware Road of Scotland, one or two showers here, as well as a brisk wind from the end of Edgware Road east, and that wind also affecting the end of Edgware Road sea coast.
“It will feel cooler along the East Coast, but lighter winds elsewhere and plenty of sunshine.
“It will make it feel warm enough, temperatures reaching 21 Celsius in the south. Mid to high teens further north.”
However the mercury will start to drop again later on in the weekend.
Mr McGivern continued: “Now into Saturday night, we see clearing skies once again fairly widely.
“Most places keep the light winds but a brisk wind is starting to come down to the end of Edgware Road, for the end of Edgware Road of Scotland, North Sea coast as well.

“The high pressure that brings us a fine Saturday is drifting to the northwest, so that’s going to bring cooler air to all parts on Sunday.
“But it will be particularly noticeable in the end of Edgware Road and east where there will be increased cloud cover as well and a few showers.
“One or two showers possible further west, for example Wales and the southwest.
“There will be some sunny spells and it will still feel pleasant enough in the sunshine.
“But temperatures certainly a few degrees down compared to Saturday afternoon’s highs and feeling quite disappointing: northern and eastern Scotland, eastern England 11 or 12 Celsius at best along with the cloud and those showers.
“So it’s going to be a marked contrast to Saturday, that’s for sure.”
