Some long-awaited September sunshine could be on the way as grey skies clear after this weekend.
According to the Met Office, conditions will remain "fairly cloudy" on Saturday (September 4) in most parts of the country, while Kent could see many sunny spells of up to 23C.
However, Sunday (September 5) is expected to be "brighter and generally dry" as the gloomy skies clear and pave the way for some unbroken sunshine.
Northern parts of England could receive heavy rain as the best weather looks set to hit the south, as The Mirror reports.

Meteorologist Alex Deakin said: “It will be dry for the vast majority, thanks to high pressure.
"But a shift in that high pressure does mean that many of us will see some sunnier skies and it will also be turning warmer, especially as we head into next week.
“Higher temperatures are on the way, through the weekend and particularly into next week. Many of us will see some September sunshine.”
He added: “It will be a dry day on Sunday for most, with a bit more sunshine and a bit more warmth.
“Temperatures will be more widely over 20C on Sunday and with the help of a bit more sunshine we could possibly get to 25C.”
The Mirror has been told by the Met Office that as well as a warm week ahead, the end of the month could see warmer temperatures than the whole of August.
Kent is set to be heat by a mini heatwave next week, caused by a 'Spanish plume' which will make its way up to the UK.
The best weather in the country could be felt in the South East with the warm air being dragged in from the Mediterranean.
Here's how the next few days look across Kent according to the Met Office.
Largely cloudy but mostly dry through Saturday morning. Cloud thinning, especially in western areas to give some bright or sunny spells by afternoon, and feeling pleasantly warm. Maximum temperature 22C.
