She said: We've got two records to break this bank holiday weekend.

And Monday will also be good, although slightly cooler.

Mr Snell said: "It looks likely we'll at least see our warmest Bank Holiday Monday on record on Monday".

He added: "Edinburgh should therefore see another lovely day, while we believe some fog could affect the south west coast, near Stranraer".

There will be a drop off in temperature as the week goes on, though the warmth is expected to return midway through the following week.

"High pressure is over the United Kingdom at the moment meaning the temperature just goes up and up and up".

"Neither does it look like it's going to be a complete washout, frightful end to the month of May".

BBC weather forecaster Alina Jenkins said: "The early May Bank Holiday temperature record has just been broken".

"That's going to be the exception rather than the rule".

Scots managed to enjoy some well-deserved sun as temperatures soared over the bank holiday weekend.

The Met Office said the conditions are being caused by an area of high pressure which is due to dominate southern Britain over the coming week.
