It’s a warm Christmas – but snow is falling for some | Weather News

2023 is proving a warm Christmas so far in the UK, with the highest minimum daily temperature on record for Christmas Day.

Temperatures did not fall below 12.4C at both Exeter Airport and East Malling in Kent between 9am on Christmas Eve and the same time on Christmas Day, the Met Office said.

In contrast, forecasters confirmed “some snow falling across the Scottish high ground” on X just after midday on Monday.

Today’s highest minimum temperature beats the previous 11.5C (52.7F) record set in Waddon, south London in 1983.

It is unlikely 2023 will become the warmest Christmas Day in 100 years – as this would require conditions of more than 15.6C (60.1F) – the record set in 1920.
