High pressure is building over Scandinavia and finally starting to settle the weather down and will also allow the temperatures to rise through this week.
On Monday temperatures peaked around 20C on the Isle of Skye, however, it was very disappointing in Inverbervie with the mercury only peaking at 8C there.
Through this week western parts of the mainland should see temperatures reaching 22-23C while more eastern areas will see temperatures in the high teens. The last time temperatures reached above 20C was on the 27th March when Aboyne sweltered in an unseasonably high 23.6C.
The Hebrides along with some eastern areas will see a little more cloud at times, and haar could also be an issue in the east. By the weekend the skies should be clear for most of the country as drier air feeds off the continent and temperatures for many should still be around the high teens to low 20s. Perhaps a decent weekend for a BBQ?
The UV levels will be high by Friday and the weekend so make sure you've got lots of sunscreen on if you're outside for any length of time. Sunburn could be a major issue for those running the Edinburgh marathon on Sunday and the purchase of a high sun block would be highly advised.
On a final note, get out there and ENJOY!
