While hot weather is expected for much of Tuesday, it is unlikely to last.
Meteorologist Jim Dale said: “This event is quite unusual. Last time the records were broken it was in a single day and it was just a spike here and there.
“Because we live, particularly in Scotland, in a temperate zone, what we’re not talking about is continuous, extreme heat that’s going to go on and on and on.
“I can’t see anything at the moment on the charts that suggest, certainly for Scotland, and even down into the London area, that suggest any repeats of this in the next couple of weeks.”
