Parts of England may see high temperatures over the coming days as an Indian summer is predicted this weekend.
The Met Office has said London and the South East could see maximum temperatures of 23C on Friday and Saturday, with both days having bright and sunny spells.
Some pockets of England, just north of London, could also see highs of 24C or 25C.
A fine and dry #weekend for many, though a change to cooler and unsettled weather arrives into the west to end Sunday

Sunday will be slightly cloudier but the temperature will otherwise remain around 23C in most places.
The western parts of England and the whole of Wales could see some cloud and potential rain on Saturday morning before it brightens up in the afternoon with highs of 21C.
This could take a turn on Sunday with some heavy showers in the South East.
North-western Scotland meanwhile will be windy in the morning on Saturday before becoming a mainly dry day with some bright or sunny spells developing and highs of 21C.
Sunday will be largely dry and bright with strong southerly winds around the coast.
The weather will take a turn on Monday, with the Met Office predicting next week to be the start of autumnal weather.
It comes as people have been warned by the AA to not top up their cars “outside of their normal routines” ahead of planning any potential weekend trips away to take advantage of the weather.
Nicky Maxey, for the Met Office, said: “You’re much more likely to see highs of 23 degrees more widely but we could see some spots reaching highs of 24 or 25C.
“It will be similar on Sunday, with places such as Lincolnshire potentially seeing similar temperatures, but still the higher temperatures being in isolated pockets rather than widespread.”
She added: “Sunday perhaps will see an increased chance of rain, but there’s still plenty of sunny spells around and fine weather.
“But we have got a cold front moving in to Northern Ireland and Scotland on Sunday and then crossing from east to west of the UK on Monday.
“That’s bringing some potentially heavy rain.
“There’s still some sunshine scattered round on Monday but we could see heavier showers.
“Hail and thunder is also a risk to the North and West, so Monday heralds a real change towards the autumnal-style weather.”
