BRITS are set to bask in 29C sunshine this weekend with warm temperatures expected across the country.
The Met Office is forecasting more days of summer bliss as we head into the weekend.
But sun seekers should make the most of the warm spell while it lasts.
The forecaster says the hot and humid weather could heighten the risk of showers and thunderstorms, particularly in the south west of the country.
The best of the sun is again expected in the west, which has witnessed some of the warmest temperatures of the season so far.
While eastern areas will continue to experience the lowest temperatures as the east-west weather divide continues.

Temperatures are likely to stay in the mid-20Cs across the country with sunny conditions, according to the weather service.
A Met Office spokesperson said: "By Saturday, warmer air is being drawn up from the south for the UK, which could lead to some spots seeing temperatures of around 29C, which is most likely in the south east of England.
"More widely it’ll be around mid-20s Celsius, though could be subdued for some with some associated showers."
The increase in temperatures is partly due to warm air pushing up from Spain towards the UK.

But showers and thunderstorms could also be on the cards.
The Met Office added: "This increase in temperatures brings an increased chance of showers, some of which could be thundery in nature."
"By late on Friday, some showers could move into the South West, spreading north and east through the weekend.
"While not everywhere will be impacted by showers, there’s a chance of some heavy downpours as daytime heating helps to develop some thundery weather for some."
Tomorrow's weather will be largely settled with a sunny day for many, according to the forecaster.
However, it may be increasingly windy for southern and southwestern areas.
Looking ahead, occasional heavy rain and thunderstorms may occur in the south towards the end of June, but temperatures are expected to remain above average, say the Met Office.
