Warm weather to hit Scotland this weekend with 19C highs in May hot spell
The weather this weekend in Scotland will be 'quite pleasant' with temperatures in the high teens across much of the country.
Temperatures on Saturday are expected to reach highs of 18C in Glasgow and 19C in Aberdeen, while London will be sweltering with a mini-heatwave at 24C or 25C.
Met Office meteorologist Alex Deakin called it 'quite an interesting' weekend of conditions as a weather front could bring thunderstorms to parts of the UK.
Scotland will miss out on the thunder and lightning, with the stormy weather to stay over parts of England and Wales that are yet to be identified.
What's more certain is that this weekend will be warmer for most of Scotland after a blustery Friday.
BBC Weather reported cloudy conditions on Friday but with some brightness in south and east whilst strong winds gust at 40mph or more on exposed coasts.
Sunday will be overcast, but dry with temperatures once again in the high teens, although those on the east coast won't be quite so fortunate.
The balmy conditions are due to a front of warm and humid air drifting up from France on Saturday that are set to spark heavy thundery shower possibly in areas of England and Wales.
The Met Office says areas on the eastern coasts could be a little bit cooler with more of a breeze off the North Sea.
"For Scotland and Northern Ireland, Sunday again largely dry and fine, quite pleasant with temperatures in the high teens," said meteorologist Alex.
On Sunday, the high in Glasgow will be 19C, 15C in Edinburgh as Aberdeen's forecast could fall to 16C.
