Commuters were greeted with a stunning sunrise over Huddersfield this morning.
There were shades of pink and gold in the skies at dawn — and it's all down to the sun's rays being reflected off ice clouds.
Temperatures yesterday reached 14C (57F) — and predictions of a white Christmas have been replaced with storm warnings.
Huddersfield weatherman Paul Stevens said the weather was likely to become wetter and windier towards Christmas.
"We will lose the exceptionally mild air from this week as we go into next week with temperatures cooling to slightly above normal."
The bookies are now taking bets on the warmest Christmas instead of a white one.
The Met Office said it’s been the fourth mildest start to December across the UK since 1960.
Despite a band of rain heading over Britain from the west today, the Met Office said temperatures are around 7C above average.
