After what feels like a lifetime of unseasonably cold temperatures, non-stop rain and even hail storms (!?), it looks like we could FINALLY be getting that spell of good weather that we deserve.
Yep, bank holidays are usually a bit of a washout, but this weekend's is set to be a bit of a scorcher. Well, compared to what we've been having, at least.
Various parts of the UK are set to enjoyed prolonged periods of sunshine and temperatures of up to 25°C, which sounds like perfect beer garden conditions to us.
Met Office spokesperson Grahame Madge told LADbible: "Across the UK, temperatures will increase over the weekend, reaching a potential maximum of 25.0 C near London on Monday.
"Most places will see prolonged bright spells and any showers will become increasingly isolated by Monday.
"There are strong indications that the settled period will extend until at least the middle of next week."
A general UK forecast for Saturday 29-Monday 31 May says we can expect largely dry conditions, with 'increasing amounts of sunshine' in most areas.
A summary on the Met Office website says: "Largely dry with increasing amounts of sunshine and warm for most.
"Isolated showers on Saturday. Feeling cooler along the east coast. Maybe turning unsettled into the far northwest later Monday."
A longer-term forecast for the period from 31 May to 9 June also says things are looking pretty good for the week beyond, too, with areas including London and Manchester set to enjoy highs of up to 23°C and 24°C next Wednesday.
The Met Office says: "Warm, settled conditions are likely to persist across many areas during early next week. There is the potential for outbreaks of rain to arrive across parts of the northwest on Monday but it is then very uncertain how far south and east more unsettled conditions develop during next week.
"Whilst there is still likely to be a good deal of dry weather, showers, which could be heavy, become more likely across the south and west during the latter part of next week. Temperatures most likely remaining around or above average.
"By the end of the period, a northwest-southeast split in conditions becomes more probable; more unsettled and cooler in the northwest, drier and warmer in the southeast."
