Aberdeen has recorded its warmest September day ever.
On Sunday, the city saw temperatures soar to 27C – beating the previous record of 25.9C by more than a degree.
With 27.1C at Fyvie Castle, it also beat its previous record of 26.9C – both previous highs were on September 8, 2021.
It comes as Scotland is set to enjoy a very warm week with plenty of fine, often sunny weather.
The Scottish September record is 32.2C from September 1906 and that doesn’t look under threat.
But overall temperatures this week will range from 18C to highs of 27C.
There is high pressure over northern mainland Europe bringing a settled, steady spell.
Low pressure off the west coast of Portugal and the remnants of what was Hurricane Franklin are lurking out in the Atlantic.
Between these lows and the high pressure there will be a push of late summer warmth from France, where there are heatwave warnings.
