Mercifully, the weekend looks set to be a good one, with plenty of sunshine on both Saturday and Sunday, with the temperature reaching a toasty 20C. Sunday looks like being the better of the two, with far less cloud than the previous day.

And the good weather will continue into next week, with Monday seeing highs of 21C and lots of bright sunshine across Edinburgh.

Met Office deputy chief meteorologist Dan Harris said: “In stark contrast to the first half of June, where temperatures have widely been below average, we are expecting to see a steady uptick through the second half of this week, rising to around or above average, and it will likely feel very warm for those in the sunshine.”
