Temperatures in Dundee set to soar tomorrow – but there’s a catch

Dundee looks set to enjoy Indian summer-like conditions.

Dundee looks set to enjoy warm temperatures tomorrow as warm air from Spain is pushed up on the UK.

While the city won’t bask in such high temperatures as those in the south, the City of Discovery could see the thermometer rise to 17C.

However, before you dig out the flip-flop and shades again, the area is likely to be hit by rain and cloudy conditions.

Heavy downpours are expected first thing in the morning with the rain making way for a grey and dreich afternoon.

The weekend looks to follow a similar pattern with Saturday dropping down to 14C, while Sunday looks to jump back up to 16C.

The Met Office’s forecast

The warm front is making its way north thanks to Hurricane Ophelia crossing the Atlantic Ocean.

While Britain will enjoy the warm air from the hurricane, the remnants look set to reach on Monday, with unsettled weather expected to cause disruption, the Met Office said.

The west of the country will see the worst of the weather, with winds of between 60mph and 70mph forecast.

Met Office forecaster Alex Burkhill said: “Ophelia became a hurricane overnight and the forecast track takes it eastwards towards Iberia for the weekend.

“After that, indications are that by that point it will then have weakened and be no longer a hurricane or tropical storm, it will be extratropical.

“But then it will continue its way towards the British Isles, probably reaching us very early next week.”

Mr Burkhill said cold sea temperatures mean Ophelia will not be strong enough to be categorised as a hurricane when it hits Britain.

But he added: “It’s definitely something that we are keeping an eye on, for the possibility of some disruptive weather early next week.”

The unsettled weather looks likely to continue into Tuesday due to a separate band of low pressure, and will remain changeable throughout the rest of the week.
