Weeks of miserable weather have left us desperate for just a ray of sunshine – and that could be just around the corner.
The weather in May has been notably bad and, with June knocking on the door, has shown few signs of getting any better.
However, new charts show the unsettled conditions are set to move away from the UK, making way for sunshine and temperatures of up to 22C.
Maps by Netweather show conditions are expected to markedly improve from 3pm on Thursday (May 27), with 19C forecast in Kent.

Friday is expected to be slightly milder with highs of 17C, reports the Daily Express.
But temperatures are set to pick up again come the weekend, with 18C forecast across the South East.
Temperatures are expected to soar even further on Sunday, with a weather chart showing much of the country turn a deep orange – indicating the warm weather.
Highs of 21C are forecast in London, while much of England can expect temperatures to reach between 18-20C.
The best of the warm weather is expected for Bank Holiday Monday however, with a scorching 22C forecast by late afternoon.
Parts of the south can also expect temperatures to reach the early 20s as a warm spell continues to sweep across the country.
Met Office forecaster Alex Deakin said we can expect to see high pressure build through the end of next week.
He said: "Through Tuesday or Wednesday next week high pressure will move in and then stick around towards the end of the month."
Mr Deakin added: "From next week we should see more reliable spells of sunshine."
The meteorologist added that the confidence for the period is pretty high.
Netweather forecasters cautioned that although warm conditions are likely, some parts of the UK could see a few scattered showers.
They said: "Although precise timing is difficult, the Spring Bank Holiday could see a few very warm summery days.
"But in a period probably of much variability, finer spells are likely to be punctuated by showers.
"Some could be heavy with locally severe thunderstorms mostly in the South, bringing the risk of further 'flash' flooding.
"Stark fluctuations in temperature seem likely especially in the East, with rainfall totals varying considerably. Probably turning fine and warmer more generally at end of period."
