Ayrshire is set to see further sunny weather over the next week, as temperatures continue to soar.

Residents and visitors flocked to Ayrshire's beaches for the May 29 Bank Holiday as they took advantage of the balmy conditions.

And the West of Scotland was expected to experience the UK's hottest day of the year on Tuesday, May 30, with the high temperatures to continue.

Some parts of Ayr are set to see temperatures hit as high as 23 degrees on Wednesday, May 31 before staying in steady highs of 17 to 21 degrees all the way until Monday, June 5 according to the Met Office.

Meteorologist Dan Stroud said temperatures will remain “generally above average” but not meet “heatwave criteria”.

He said: “We’ve got high pressure sending across at the moment, which is bringing dry and settled weather and some late spring, early summer sunshine.

“We’re expecting similar conditions for the rest of the week and into next weekend and probably beyond. So an extended spell of dry and settled weather.”

Mr Stroud said May has been “very dry” and with “just slightly more than half the normal amount of rainfall we would actually expect”.
