Warm weather continues for the north - it was 28.7c in Kinlochewe, in the NW Highlands, yesterday, the highest temperature of the year anywhere in Britain and very close to the all time Scottish May record.  It's almost certainly a site record.  And it was almost as hot down on the south coast too as Britain basks in sunshine.  Very hot in Ireland as well where heatwave to last all weekend but yesterday was peak with several May records broken across the country.
