    Today's weather 09:03: Judith Ralston BBC Weather presenter

    The recent dry and warm weather will continue across the country. Any morning mist and fog will burn back towards the east coast, where some patches of haar will linger for much of the day, particularly over Orkney and the east of Shetland.

    It'll be another very warm day with temperatures reaching 25C to 27C for many inland areas, with light breezes cooling Dundee and Edinburgh to a high of around 22C.

    The high temperatures may trigger off a few showers late this afternoon and into the early evening, mainly across the northwest Highlands, with possibly the odd one developing over the high ground of central and southern Scotland.
