There could be time for one last warm staycation or day trip this weekend as forecasters predict temperatures of up to 17C.
A warm front brought by a flow of air from France and Spain will bring mild weather from today, with temperatures reaching around 16C, and 17C tomorrow, stretching all the way through the weekend.
Although London and the South East will be the warmest, most of the country will feel the effects of the mild weather, with the North enjoying temperatures of around 14C.
The unusually warm weather may be accompanied by cloud and rain to start with, but sunshine should emerge across the country from tomorrow.
Met Office forecaster Mark Seltzer told the Daily Mail: 'This is about as good as it can be at this time of year. The mild weather should go through until at least Saturday and there still should be plenty of sunshine on Sunday.
'On Thursday we will start to see spells of sunshine in the East that should raise temperatures and we're not expecting any rain.
'The maximum temperatures will be found in London, but much of Cambridgeshire, Norfolk, Suffolk, and possibly Surrey. We should not see any frost for the next few days.'
But make the most of it, council workers everywhere are stockpiling grit in preparation for an icy blast at the end of November.
The average temperature for this time of year hovers around 10C. The record for the warmest November day is 20.7c, set in Aber, North Wales, in 2007.
