Temperatures are expected to peak at around 23c in some parts of Scotland on Tuesday.

He said the average maximum temperature in Scotland for mid September is 16-17c, adding: “Most places will be above average.

“High pressure to the south-east of the UK and, as the winds go clockwise, air is dragged in from the south-east which is always a warm direction for the UK.”

Mr Miall added that sunshine is expected widely across Scotland too which will contribute towards these higher than average temperatures.
