Parts of Scotland are set to enjoy warm weather from early next week just days after the nation was hit with snow and ice.

Starting on Monday, certain cities will bask in temperatures as high as 12C one week after Central Scotland battled through a -3C front which brought snow and ice causing travel chaos.

The Met Office has said the change to milder weather is the result of a tropical maritime air mass.

The weather service explained this is a mild air stream which, during the winter months in particular, can raise the air temperature several degrees above the average.

While Glasgow will see the mercury rise to 10C, those in Edinburgh, St Andrews, and Dundee will see temperatures rise as high as 12C.

Last week’s cold weather saw the Met Office issue a yellow warning for ice and forecasted between two to five millimeters of snowfall across Central Scotland.
