Tuesday could be the hottest day of 2023 so far as the Met Office say temperatures are set to reach 25C in parts of the country.
The west of Scotland is the most likely area expected to experience the soaring temperatures.
It comes after Sunday broke Saturday’s record for the hottest day, with Plymouth seeing 24.4C.
Met Office meteorologist Dan Stroud said 25C is expected in “one of two spots … most likely across West Scotland”.
He added: “But after that we’re expecting temperatures just to subside just a little as we move forward towards the middle and end of the week.”
Mr Stroud said temperatures will remain “generally above average” but not meet “heatwave criteria”.
He said: “We’ve got high pressure sending across at the moment, which is bringing dry and settled weather and some late spring, early summer sunshine.
“We’re expecting similar conditions for the rest of the week and into next weekend and probably beyond. So an extended spell of dry and settled weather.”
Mr Stroud said May has been “very dry” and with “just slightly more than half the normal amount of rainfall we would actually expect”.
