The Met Office has provisionally recorded the highest daily minimum temperature for Christmas Day on record.
It comes amid predictions that Monday will be the warmest December 25 in almost a decade, with forecasters predicting highs of 14C in some parts of the country.
However, some parts of northern Scotland have seen snow technically making it a White Christmas, which is defined by the Met Office as a single snowflake falling on December 25.
In a post on X, known formerly as Twitter, the forecasting body said: “It has been a very mild 24 hours across parts of the UK.
“Provisionally this Christmas we have recorded the highest daily minimum temperature for Christmas Day on record, with both Exeter Airport and East Malling not falling below 12.4C.”
It comes ahead of a yellow weather warning for Rain and snow across the majority of Scotland later this week.
The Met Office alert covers large parts of north, eastern and central Scotland including Aberdeenshire, Tayside, Fife, parts of the Lothians and the Borders.
The alert is in place from 6am until 11.59pm on Wednesday, December 27.
It follows days of high winds, blustery showers and snow battering parts of Scotland which sparked three yellow weather alerts across the country.
Parts of Scotland were hit by snow showers and ice, causing major travel disruption over the Christmas weekend.
A yellow warning for wind was in place until midnight on Sunday, December 24, covering most of Scotland north of Peebles.
