Scotland could see its warmest November night on record amid unseasonably mild temperatures.

Spells of wet and windy conditions are forecast but southerly winds moving from the “very warm” mid-Atlantic mean the mercury is sitting well above average for this time of year.

Thermometers could peak at around 15C or 16C tomorrow during the day in some parts of Scotland, with central and southern parts of Scotland potentially remaining above 14C moving into night-time.

STV News weather presenter Philip Petrie said: “Over the next few days things are staying fairly unsettled with spells of wet and very windy conditions. It’s not until we get to Sunday that we start to see high pressure dominating and a more settled, quiet and dry day ahead. 

“The main topic of conversation this week is the milder than average conditions we are experiencing with temperatures well above average for the time of year. This is all down to the fact we are in a south westerly airflow, and if we track the source of the winds they are coming from the very warm mid-Atlantic. 

“This means that by Thursday daytime we are seeing temperatures reaching highs of around 15C to 16C in some spots, particularly further south – which is around 4C to 5C above average for this time of year. 

“The highest minimum temperature ever recorded in Scotland was 14.5C in Dyce on November 1, 2007, and it’s quite possible that we could see places like Ayrshire, Lanarkshire, Stirling and parts of Tayside remaining around 14C to 15C by night.

“On November 5, 1946 Edinburgh recorded a low of 13.8C, which is this location’s highest overnight minimum for November, and possibly this could be broken tomorrow night too.”
