Scotland could be set to sizzle as it prepares for what could be the hottest day of the year.

Temperatures could soar to 24C on Wednesday, making it the hottest day of the year so far.

It follows warm weather in Scotland over the past few days, with some areas hotter than Majorca.

STV Weather presenter Laura Piper said: "Storms in the United States have forced our jet stream into a more northerly position, bringing a change which has allowed an area of high pressure to become anchored over Scotland.

"Warm air is now sweeping up from Iberia, bringing us some fine and dry conditions with plenty of lovely sunshine.

"It will feel pleasantly warm in those sunny spells today, though it is still a bit breezy in the Western Isles."

On Wednesday temperatures could rise to 24C in the north of the country.

Laura added: "UV levels will be high so remember to wear sunscreen.

"By the end of the week, that high pressure will slip away though and we'll have cooler winds coming into the east coast off the North Sea.

"The west will hold onto those lovely temperatures for a bit longer, but do get out and enjoy that sunshine while you can.

"We're definitely above average for this time of year, where in the north of Scotland we'd usually expect to only see around 13C or 14C."
