The Scottish Borders has been basking in some sun in recent days but how long is the good weather set to last?

With snow predicted across parts of Scotland next week, it doesn't look like we can pack away our cosy hats and gloves just yet.

If you were enjoying the warm Spring weather, we recommend you make the most of this weekend before the snow falls next week. 

Here's what the BBC and the Met Office predict in the coming days to help you make the most of the glorious weather while it lasts.

How long will the good weather last in the Scottish Borders?

What does the BBC forecast?

We look set to enjoy a sunny weekend with just a gentle breeze, according to BBC weather.

Temperatures are expected to reach highs of 16 and lows of 4 which is ideal for a Spring picnic or trip to the beach.

The weather is unfortunately expected to turn a little cloudy into next week, it will remain dry with a gentle breeze.

On Wednesday, you should expect some light rain throughout the day with a chance of sleet overnight from 11 pm.

The wintry weather is expected to continue throughout the day on Thursday but the end of the week should end brightly with sunny intervals.

What does the Met Office say?

The Met Office has a similar outlook in its short-range forecast with the weather expected to be bright and sunny across the weekend.

However, its long-range forecast says that "wintry showers" are still very much on the cards.

The Met Office says: "Wintry showers remain possible, particularly in the north. Later next week and beyond, unsettled conditions are likely with more frequent showers or longer spells of rain for many areas.

"After a spell of below average temperatures next week, temperatures are likely to return to near average later in the period."

The long-range forecast says that the unsettled weather could continue into the beginning of April. 

The weather forecaster added: "Showers or longer spells of rain are more likely to be seen across the UK, although short drier and more settled interludes are still possible. Showers may be heavy at times, with thunder and hail.

"Moving into mid-April, there is a trend for a return to more settled weather again, although some rain and showers are still possible in places.

"Temperatures are likely to be near average, with the south and southeast on the slightly warmer side."
