Friday

It will be sunny throughout the day, from 9am to 4pm.

Temperatures are set to hit highs of just 3 °C in mid-afternoon and lows of -3 °C. It will return to freezing around 7pm.

A Met Office spokesperson said: "A fine dry day with long spells of unbroken sunshine. A cold day with frost early and late."

Saturday

Again, Edinburgh is set for another day of wall-to-wall sunshine, from 9am to 6pm.

However, we will only see highs of around 2 °C and lows of -2 °C, with temperatures reaching freezing at the much earlier time of 3pm.

Sunday

Sunday is to be the best day of the weekend temperatures hitting a high of 4 °C and the lowest we will feel being 0 °C.

Again, much like Friday and Saturday, it will be sunny all day with no early signs of rain or snow.

A Met Office spokesperson said about the weekend weather: "A dry weekend with some long clear or sunny spells. It will be cold with widespread frosts. Monday turning cloudier, perhaps some rain later."
