Edinburgh weather set to be hotter than Tenerife next week as temperatures soar

Edinburgh is set to be hotter than Tenerife next week as temperatures are to soar next week.

Parts of Europe are currently experiencing an extreme heatwave with Portugal issuing a warning over forest fires. The hot air circulating around France, Spain and Portugal is set to flow towards to the UK bringing with it the high temperatures.

Areas around the UK have already felt highs of the late 20s with Edinburgh catching it on the odd days this month so far. However, next week, temperatures are set to spike again, higher than a popular island in the Canaries.

According to Met Office, Edinburgh is expected to reach 25C on Monday with sunshine and then jump to 27C on Tuesday. Meanwhile in Tenerife it is set to be a cloudy 24C on Monday and 25C on Tuesday.

This will carry on from the hot weekend Edinburgh locals are expected to be graced with in the coming days with Saturday reaching 21C and Sunday will see 24C with sunny intervals. However the weather forecasters also warn that this heat will bring with it 'very high' pollen levels.

So for those heading outside at the weekend and next week, it is highly advised to wear SPF and if you are allergic to pollen, to take anti-allergy tablets. Even when it's cloudy, the UV raises are still strong.

Looking toward next week, the Met Office add: "Sunny and dry conditions will prevail for most under the influence of high pressure at the start of this period, though showers are likely across the north and northwest at times. Temperatures near normal in the far northwest but remaining warm or very warm for the rest of Scotland and Northern Ireland."
