Music to the ears of revellers already basking in the April sunshine, I'm sure.
Commenting on the post, one person wrote: "Boom! Can it last for longer please?"
Today's predictions go one better than those given earlier this week, which claimed some parts of the UK would be hotter than Egypt this weekend.
Speaking to the Sun, Met Office meteorologist Mark Wilson said: "For Saturday, we're looking at highs of 23C and possibly 24C.
"For Sunday, we're looking at highs of 24C with just a small chance of 25C.
"But it's approaching the mid-20s which is very warm indeed.
"All in all, it's going to generally be a really nice weekend for most areas with plenty of dry areas with lots of sunshine to come as well.
"It will turn a little bit cooler across parts of the north through the weekend, but nonetheless for the bulk of England and Wales it will be sunny."
But the good weather is a double-edged sword, with millions of hay fever sufferers struggling with the heat.
However, medical expert Dr. Daisy Bennett appeared on Sky News to offer some handy tips to help keep those pesky symptoms at bay.
For those of you who want to go down the non-medical route, she suggested: "Using vaseline around your nose, that stops the pollen from landing on the mucous membrane surface, which is on the inside of your nose.
Sounds good. What else? "Wearing wraparound sunglasses, again protecting the membrane from the eyes so the pollen doesn't land on your eyes."
She added: "Just simple things like washing your clothes if you've been outside... don't dry your bedding, bed sheets, clothes outside, because pollen will land on that."
