Glasgow is set for a heatwave next week with a forecast of temperatures reaching 27 degrees.

We've had a bit of a miserable start to the summer with a wet and mild June so far, but things look to be turning around soon.

The sun is coming out this weekend with a temperature of 20 degrees in the Glasgow area, and this will creep up to 27 degrees on Wednesday.

The Met Office says: "Predominantly fine and settled through the period and for much of the country turning much warmer than we have seen in recent weeks. At first some thicker cloud could bring some outbreaks of mostly light rain, this mainly affecting western, especially northwestern areas.

"However for most it will be dry throughout, and likely to turn increasingly warm as we move into next week. There is a chance that this could persist for much of the rest of the period, turning increasingly hot, however by mid-next week we see a large range of outcomes. some of which allow for a return of much cooler conditions and northerly winds for the latter part of next week. However the trend toward much warmer conditions is preferred for now."
