While in Scotland, the mercury is expected to reach between 20C at the coast and 24C in the mainland.

The scorching temperatures come as the whole of Europe is bathed in a warm spell, with parts of Spain hitting a baking 41.1C by the same time this evening.

Portugal, France and parts of Italy will also see rising temperatures this evening.

But the good weather in the UK is expected to be short-lived and will not extend into the three-day “heatwave territory”,, the MEt Office confirmed.

So far this month, the highest maximum temperature recorded was 28.5C (83.3F) on July 17 at Heathrow Airport.

“We’ve not seen a temperature anywhere above 30 so far or even with a three in it, that is quite unusual for July,” a Met spokesman said.

“In terms of shifting the overall weather stats for the month, it’s not going to do much to the average.”
