Sun cream, sunglasses and bikinis at the ready as forecasters say Britain could be hotter than Ibiza this weekend.
Temperatures could even reach up to 27C in some parts of the country according to weather experts, so you might not need to jet away for a sun-soaked break to catch some rays after all.
Forecasters say that this week might be a little soggy in most parts of the country, but things will take a more humid turn by Thursday and Friday as June begins.
However, the rain might not stay away as the Met Office says thundery showers may break out, with the weather taking a cooler turn on Monday.
The Met Office said: "The weekend will be much warmer than recently and locally very warm in the south and east where brightest conditions are likely. It could also be quite humid.
"Scattered thundery showers may break out, with cooler conditions spreading southeast to most parts by Monday."
If temperatures do reach 27C in the south and east at the weekend, we could see our hottest day of the year so far.
Meanwhile, Met Office meteorologist Aidan McGivern added: "Further south, [there will be] sunny skies through Saturday and Sunday and temperatures climbing into the mid or even high 20s.
"A very warm weekend to come in the south [with] hot sunshine developing in the far southeast."
The Met Office says temperatures can range between 16C in the north and 22C in the south on Thursday and Friday.
Things will then heat up further on Saturday in sheltered central and southern areas.

The sunny island of Ibiza is predicted highs of between 23C and 24C on both Saturday and Sunday.
Highs of 27C sounds good to us!
