BRITS are set to bask in glorious 23C sunshine tomorrow but should make the most of it while they can, according to the latest forecasts.
The Met Office are predicting that conditions will cool and cloud over in the coming days, capping off a run of warm weather.
The bank holiday weekend is forecast to be warm throughout, but nights will begin to turn "chilly" by the early part of the week.
Fine, settled conditions are expected for most in the daytime as a jet stream and an area of high pressure keep things settled.
The Met's forecast states that today is likely to be a "dry and bright day", before patchy cloud is expected to move in tonight, with the chance of some scattered showers across northern Scotland.
For tomorrow, it says: "Another dry day, with sunny spells.

However, temperatures are then expected to begin to fall again as, overnight on Monday, they could drop into single figures.
Some parts of northern Scotland could see lows of just 5C.
Looking into the week ahead, the forecast states: "Largely dry and settled throughout, with sunny spells.
"However, low cloud could affect the far north and east at times.
"Feeling warm for most, though cooler towards some eastern coasts."
Paul Gunderson, chief forecaster at the Met, said: "The jet stream sitting to the north of the UK is holding unsettled weather systems at bay and allowing high pressure to dominate bringing fine weather to the vast majority of the UK.
"The current position of the high-pressure means we will see a westerly airflow over the UK, a cooler direction than if air was being brought up from the South, and areas such as Spain or Africa.
"Therefore, we are not likely to reach heatwave conditions, but temperatures will still be warm reaching the low 20Cs for many, particularly in the South West and southern Wales."
Meanwhile, with half-term beginning this week, the RAC had a warning for drivers looking to travel over the holiday period.
RAC spokesman Rod Dennis added: "We fully expect families to make the most of the largely fine weather over the coming days which is why we’re forecasting the busiest late May bank holiday since before the pandemic.
"As usual, it’s Friday afternoon and evening that could see some of the worst jams.
"Into next week and half-term for many parts of the UK, day trips will also be a big feature with popular routes to the coasts and countryside becoming busy.
"Getting away early in the morning or delaying trips until the evening are the best way to avoid the inevitable delays."
