Dundee is to bask in glorious sunshine for the foreseeable future, according to forecasters.
The Met Office say there is “no end in sight” to the warm weather with Tayside set to sizzle in temperatures of up to 25C.
Dundee saw excellent spells of warm weather in May and after recent rain the sun is coming back.
June has been a mixed bag weather-wise for the City of Discovery.
Despite an early summery spell, a severe weather warning was issued due to high winds and plummeting temperatures.
The average temperature for Tayside at this time of year is normally between 16-17C.
But there could be a 9C increase in the coming days.
Met Office forecaster Emma Sullitoe said: “We’re going to see high pressure across the country and into next week.
“We’ll be seeing dry weather with pockets of cloud on Saturday but with similar temperatures.
“From Sunday onwards though we’re going to get some really decent sunshine and it’s a marked difference.
“It’ll be between 19-20C on average during the day.
“Then on Monday we’re going to get between 22-23C and then 24-25C so it’s looking really good for the next while. It’s going to be very warm and it is particularly warm for this time for year.”
Met Office statistics for the first part of June show it is on track to be Scotland’s hottest month since 1940.
And June’s rainfall in Scotland is also down by 20%, at just 36mm, amid 86 hours of sunshine, the Met Office said.
Next week, Tayside’s weather could rival that of Istanbul, Barcelona and Corfu with temperatures expected to increase in the middle of next week.
Ms Sullitoe said the sunny weather is here to stay in Tayside – at least for the next few weeks.
She added: “The average is between 16-17C so that’s an 9C increase on the usual temperature for this time of year.
“We’ve also got high levels of UV and high levels of pollen across the area as well. The southern half of the UK will push towards 30C.
“Last year, the warmest level we saw was 19.5C.
“From what we’re seeing it looks as though there’s going to be no end in sight to the good weather in the Tayside region.”
Dundee regularly clocks up more hours of sunshine than any other city in Scotland. The council launched the #SunnyDundee campaign to promote the city’s position as the country’s sunniest city.
Thousands of pairs of #SunnyDundee-branded sunglasses were given to visitors and businesses, with an invitation to explore the city and share their photographs using the #SunnyDundee hashtag.
Although free, a £1 donation is suggested, which will go to support the cancer care centre Maggie’s Dundee.
