Met Office forecasters say people living in the south and east of England are set to enjoy the best weather across the country this weekend. “Messy” weather has been predicted for much of the country with rain and winds in parts, but Kent will benefit from temperatures of up to 20C.

From Friday to Sunday, the county was told to expect sunny intervals interspersed with clouds and rain showers. Sunday appears to be the brightest day of the weekend with clear skies and sunshine expected in some areas.

Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin said: ‘Further south it’s generally drier with a few clearer spells, but that won’t bring temperatures down. Friday, again, will be another mess with some places having very hot sunshine but others still likely to see showers.

“A scattering of showers further south,” he continued. “Not too much in the South East of England.”

The forecaster added that a weather front is coming in a band of rain and is expected to sweep across Wales and south-west England. This will then move through “all parts” Friday night and Saturday. Clearer air and some wind should follow.



There is a chance of showers on Friday night

Turning his attention to the weekend, Mr Deakin said there would be a cooler feeling on Saturday across the board. He said: “It will be a cooler day but we could still reach 23C or 24C with sunny spells in the south-east.

“In general, we are looking for teenagers and young people in their twenties at best. It will be a similar story on Sunday with another mix of sunshine and showers.
