The Scots record soaks the sun on the day as we have the warmest September temperature for over a century.

Scotland has experienced the highest temperatures in September in a century.

Just two months before the COP26 Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, parts of the country reached a high of 28.6C today.

Today, 28.6 degrees Celsius was recorded in the border charter hall.

This makes it the hottest day in September since Gordon Castle in Murray returned to 32.2C in 1906.

The Met Office shared the news of the impressive record on social media, reaching the heights of Glasgow 27C.

It was a bit cold in the north of the country, Peterhead reached 24C and Eberleur reached 23C.

The hottest part of the country was in the south, with parts of Dumfreeze and Galway reaching 28 degrees Celsius.

People are sharing the temperature of their area on social media this afternoon.

A man from C برte d’Ivoire, Lancashire, shared a temperature of 29C on Twitter.

Someone else commented: “It’s 32C in my garden near Balter this afternoon.”

The high temperatures came as Britain prepares for storms, with yellow weather warnings issued in most areas yesterday.

A yellow weather warning has been issued for thunderstorms affecting most parts of the UK except the Southeast.

The Met Office has advised that there is a small chance of rapid flooding of homes and businesses, with floodwaters, lightning, hail or wind damaging some buildings.

This can lead to delays and cancellations in some train and bus services, as well as difficult driving conditions and road closures.

There is also a small chance that some rural communities may be temporarily cut off from flooded roads.

A Met Office spokesman said: “Almost everywhere you can see some storms on Thursday.”
