Dundonians are set to bask in summer sunshine today during the hottest day of the year so far.
Temperatures are expected to rocket to a sizzling 27C in Tayside with Dundee experiencing conditions of 26C.
Conditions in the area will match those in Ibiza and will be warmer than holiday hot-spot Tenerife.
The heatwave is predicted to cool slightly by Wednesday but will return again on Thursday with a roasting weekend in prospect.
Experts at the Met Office said the sweltering conditions will be seen across the UK, with several areas down south experiencing temperatures as high as 30C tomorrow.
Sun-seekers will also be thrilled after the Met Office said the summer spell will continue into the weekend.
Met Office spokesman Tony Gray said the current heatwave will be felt across the country.
He said: “It has been caused by an unusually high area of pressure sitting directly over the UK.
“It will be bright with sunny spells. Overall, people in Tayside are in for a nice forecast in the coming days.”
The high pressure causing the spell of fine weather has arrived, coinciding with a jet stream being in the “right” place for the time of year.
The jet stream guides rain-bearing Atlantic low pressure systems off to the north of the country, therefore leaving more settled conditions elsewhere.
Tomorrow’s balmy conditions follow three days of warm sunshine in Tayside and Fife.
Families flocked to Dundee’s parks and beaches after the sunshine arrived to make the most of the summer conditions.
Barbecue sales and ice cream sales went through the roof as people enjoyed the sweltering temperatures.
Customers were seen queuing out the door at Visocchi’s ice cream parlour in Broughty Ferry’s Gray Street.
Owner Antonia Caira said: “It has been very busy over the weekend.
“The sun definitely makes a difference.”
