Next week is to bring a heatwave to Glasgow, with temperatures reaching 20 degrees.

The MET Office has announced that the influence of former tropical cyclone Franklin will create high temperatures across the UK.

In Glasgow, forecasts predict up to 22 degrees on Monday, 24 degrees from Tuesday to Thursday and 23 degrees on Friday and Saturday.

Met Office deputy chief meteorologist, Chris Bulmer, said: “As high pressure becomes established from this weekend, fine and settled conditions will develop and along with this we will see a rise in temperature across most parts of the UK next week.

"Many places can expect to see maximum temperatures rise to 25°C or above for several days, which would bring some locations into the realm of heatwave conditions.

"So, while some areas may just miss out on the actual definition, regardless of thresholds, many areas will enjoy a fine period of weather with plenty of sunshine and temperatures are likely to be the highest for many since June or early July.”
