It’s generally mild everywhere today but exceptionally so in parts of Scotland. At 11am today, temperatures of 16c - 61 degrees Fahrenheit - were already being recorded near Aberdeen.

And the mercury is expected to rise even higher during the next few hours.

The current record for the warmest February in Scotland is 17.9c. That was set on February 22nd1897.

North East England will also be exceptionally mild today. Highs of 15 or 16c are possible.

However, western areas such as Dumfries & Galloway and Cumbria will experience a lot of cloud so aren’t expected to match these impressive figures.

In England, the mildest February day on record is 19.7c.

This was set on February 13th 1998 atGreenwich Observatory in London. No English records are expected to be broken.
