Temperatures are expected to be hotter than MADRID this Christmas

Londoners in Spain will be disappointed they aren’t enjoying warmer weather, whilst those who remain in the capital will find themselves without a white Christmas!

The Met Office is predicting highs of 15C for London on Christmas day – meaning we are close to the warmest Christmas on record.

Killerton in Devon and Lieth in Edinburgh currently hold the record for the warmest Christmas Day with temperatures of 15.6 degrees in 1920 and 1896 respectively.

The cause is the effects from Storm Barbara.

Grahame Madge, spokesman for the Met Office, said: “The most intense winds will be in Glasgow, Inverness, and the north and west of Scotland.

“But the whole of northern England, north Wales and Northern Ireland could also be affected.

He added: “The nature of the storm means it still has the potential to have an impact on power supplies, structures, and disrupt bridge and ferry crossings.”
