Glasgow weather: Glasgow is as warm as Lisbon today and rocketing to 27 degrees tomorrow

By Christina O'Neill

Glasgow is set to bask in sunshine and warm temperatures this week - with the temperature here reaching similar levels to Lisbon today.

Thermometers are set to soar to 27 degrees in the city tomorrow (Wednesday), though it's sadly not to last; there is a chance of thunderstorms and heavy showers in the days following.

It might be a wee bit grey and overcast right now, but we can look forward to clear skies and brighter weather later this evening with a "maximum temperature of 25C," according to the Met Office.

The temperature will peak at around 27C tomorrow at around 4pm with long, sunny spells, though it's expected to get cloudier later on.
