Compensation for energy customers, who have been left without power for more than a day during severe weather, has been tripled.
Energy regulator Ofgem is to take action against two power companies, who have already paid out £4.7 million to powerless homes, for even more compensation.
ITV News correspondent Nina Nannar reports:
The UK will enjoy plenty of fine warm weather, with temperatures of up to 28C, heading into the weekend before a slightly unsettled couple of days.
ITV Weather Presenter Manali Lukha has the full forecast:
It is a beautiful day and the sun is shining for most, but there is a risk of thundery showers for some. For most though, it will be a warm afternoon, with temperatures as high as 29 in Scotland and 30 in the southeast.
Ofgem has said "companies could have done more" to help customers during last year's winter storms, when power cuts affected nearly a million homes.

A power cut at Christmas time is the last thing anyone needs.
While we recognise the hard work of the companies and their staff who were out working to reconnect customers during the severe weather, the companies could have done more to plan for the weather and keep customers informed.
The energy regulator is to more than double the minimum compensation payment for households that suffer power losses due to severe weather.
Ofgem said the planned changes should "strengthen the incentives for companies to act quickly" and reconnect customers as soon as possible.
Energy regulator Ofgem has agreed an additional £3.3 million from companies SSE and UK Power Networks after an investigation into how they dealt with last year's winter storms.
The money will go to organisations that played a key role in helping vulnerable customers who suffered power loss.
The firms have already paid out £4.7 million and committed to improvements.
Severe weather over Christmas 2013 saw power cuts affect nearly a million homes and Ofgem has today put the industry on notice that any repeat of last year's performance issues will trigger further action.
Scottish and Southern Energy's payout totals £2.3 million to the British Red Cross, Age UK, National Energy Action, Macmillan Cancer Support, and to a new community fund.
Distributor UK Power Network totals paid £1 million to the British Red Cross, the Royal Association for Deaf People, Carer's Trust and Citizens Advice.
Energy provider Scottish and Southern Energy and distributor UK Power Network have agreed to pay out a total £8 million over their handling of last year's winter storms.
An additional £3.3 million has been secured by regulator Ofgem after the £4.7 million already paid out to customers over "exceptional" storms last Christmas in the south of England.
Energy regulator Ofgem is to more than double the minimum compensation payment for households that suffer power losses due to severe weather.
Affected customers will now receive at least £70 if they experience an outage of more than 24 hours.
Plenty of dry weather over the next 24 hours, with showers in the southwest.
Warm conditions overnight will spark off storms in the southwest where a weather warning will be in force tomorrow morning.
