An Arctic blast is set to make its presence known over the South East this weekend.
The milder air we've been experiencing in the South East recently is set to make way for a cold arctic air mass on Saturday night into Sunday morning.
Daytime temperatures on Sunday are forecast to be as low as 5c.

The icy blast is forecast to stick around until at least late next week with a brief reprieve on Tuesday and Wednesday.
Taking to Twitter, weather expert Alan O'Reilly said: "Time to get the sticks in and the winter wardrobe out, much cooler from Sunday and possibly even colder next week."
Despite the sudden temperature drop snow isn't expected to fall in the South East anytime soon. Sorry guys!
The weather models are throwing out some very cold possibilities for later next week. It is well outside the reliable time frame so uncertain for now but I’m keeping a close ? pic.twitter.com/wq8eeq0A2S
