Scotland's hot and dry bank holiday weekend is set to extend into a fifth day, according to forecasters. 

The Met Office said a high of 23.6C was recorded in the country today, making this the warmest Easter Monday on record. 

It comes after Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland each enjoyed their warmest Easter Sunday on record.

Weather experts across the country are predicting another day of sun and warm weather across the central belt on Tuesday, even reaching into the beginning of Wednesday.

Temperatures as high as 23C have been recorded across Glasgow in the past few days.

However, the tide of good weather is set to turn later this week. 

Warm temperatures could still rise to around 17C on Wednesday but look set to be accompanied by rain across the city. 

Thursday and Friday look similarly warm and wet, with heavier showers set to hit the city on Saturday. 

The week could end with a dry day on Sunday, but with temperatures about half of those one week earlier, with forecasters predicting highs of around 12°C.
