Dundee is set for some truly “taps aff” weather this weekend with sun, clear skies and warm winds expected on Saturday.
Forecasters at the Met Office are expecting temperatures in the mid-to-high teens for the city.
In addition, gentle winds should provide a warm and welcome breeze during the day.
However, Dundonians should slap on the sunscreen if they plan on catching some rays, with a high risk of UV ray exposure, especially at Saturday lunchtime.
Nicola Maxey, a spokeswoman for the Met Office, explained the sun was as strong in spring as it is in summer, despite the cooler temperatures – and advised Taysiders to take care.
She said: “We’ve got a high-pressure system anchored over the UK at the moment although the polar maritime air mass is making it a little bit cooler than the spell we had in April.
“We’ve got some nice clear skies and plenty of sunshine. The nights should be relatively clear, but they will be colder than during the day – so don’t pack the duvet away quite yet.”
The mercury is expected to peak at around 17C on Saturday and 15C on Sunday, with little in the way of wind chill to bring the “feels like” temperature down.
But on Saturday, the sun is expected to beat down on Dundee harder than at any other point of the weekend.
A UV index rating of 6 – indicating a “high” level of exposure – has been forecast for around midday.
Nicola added: “Conditions will be a lot clearer on Saturday – it might get a little cloudy on Sunday.
“However, we would advise people to cover up during the day on Saturday.
“It’s early in the year so it’s cooler at the moment than during the summer.
“However, the sun is as strong now as at other times of the year so there is a good chance of UV (exposure).
“We advise people to take the usual precautions. It’s important to use sunscreen.
“Spend some time in the shade in the middle of the day, wear a hat, make sure that children are properly protected.”
As for hayfever sufferers, the good news is that pollen counts aren’t expected to be particularly high this weekend.
Nicola said: “Pollen shouldn’t be too bad at the moment – we’re expecting about medium levels.”
