Weather UK forecast: Christmas chaos caused by storm from south as NYE set to be hottest on record with highs of 15C

CHRISTMAS chaos has been caused by storms from the south, but the weather is set to get warmer with highs of 15C on New Years Eve.

Temperatures are set to be “exceptionally mild” this week before hitting a balmy 15C on Friday – warmer than April, when the mercury hovers at an average of 14C.

However, not everywhere will be as warm – with WXCharts predicting snow in southern Scotland on December 31.

Met Office forecaster Sarah Kent said: “The weather has been pretty topsy-turvy.

“We’ve had a white Christmas – and now we’re going to see it get warmer.”
