It's going to be a scorcher over the Bank Holiday weekend.

While temperatures will remain steady into the weekend with highs of around 18 degrees on Saturday and Sunday.

However, the mercury will rise above 20 degrees on Monday with temperatures remaining in the 20s until next Thursday.

Indeed, the temperatures across the Capital in the next week are rivalling a few European cities, with Edinburgh being as hot as Rome and Madrid on Friday and having similar temperatures across the following week.

Although there is a chance of some showers, it looks like Edinburgh could be in for a promising start to the summer.
