Record Bank Holiday Monday temperatures expected in Scotland

Mr Snell said: "It looks likely we'll at least see our warmest Bank Holiday Monday on record on Monday".

Today is predicted to be the warmest May bank holiday Monday since the holiday was introduced in 1978.

Northern England and Wales are expected to see highs of 23C.

Anthony Smith, chief executive of the independent watchdog Transport Focus, said: "Passengers will rightly be frustrated to find they can't travel on the bank holiday weekend".

A forecast on the Met Office website reads: "Bank Holiday Monday promises to be another very warm day, with plenty of sunshine".

But forecasters warn the warm sunshine will lead to higher than normal levels of UV radiation, meaning a risk of sunburn.

Sunday is set to see temperatures heading towards the 20 mark.

Miss Yeomans said the hot weather will persist in southern areas on Tuesday although conditions could break down later in the week with cooler temperatures.

Other forecasters claimed the sweltering temperatures could reach 29C in some parts of the United Kingdom on Monday.

Miss Yeomans said the warm and sunny weather forecast for southern Britain is a reversal of conditions in early May past year.

Scotland wasn't the only part of the United Kingdom to benefit from blue skies, with temperatures reaching 20.8C in Katesbridge, Northern Ireland, 23.6C at Powys in Wales and 25.6C in London.
