But the changes in weather will be noticeable by Saturday morning as temperatures drop more than 10C as a cold front creeps in from the north. Ms Keith-Lucas said: "It's going to feel quite warm out there today. In fact, those temperatures will be creeping up into the mid-twenties for many of us.

"There will also be some scattered showers later on this afternoon and the odd thunderstorm around as well so, it will be cloudier for some of us especially in the north and the west.

"Largely dry conditions holding on in central-eastern parts because we've got quite a lot of high pressure sitting across continental Europe.

"We've got a little more cloud around the Irish Sea coasts. A few heavy showers across the southwest of England, Northern Ireland and Scotland also seeing some of those showers. and thunderstorms.

"Into this evening so of those heavy showers and thunderstorms continue to rattle through."

Ms Keith-Lucas continued: "Through the weekend we've got a realy change on the cards.

"Things are going to be turning quite a bit colder particularly by the time we get to Sunday.

Dominic Raab has told the public to "follow the guidance" and resist the urge to linger out of doors this bank holiday weekend, despite the sunshine and warm temperatures that has been forecast.

Speaking at the Downing Street briefing, the Foreign Secretary insisted there will be no change to social distancing rules until the Prime Minister makes an address to the nation on Sunday evening.

Mr Raab said on Thursday: "Any changes in the short term will be modest, small, incremental and very carefully monitored."

He added: "For the moment it is really important, particularly as people look towards a warm bank holiday weekend, that we continue to follow the guidance in place at this time."
