Christmas weather forecast introduction
Welcome to our dedicated Christmas 2015 weather forecast page. If forecasting a few days ahead is prone to error in the UK how it is possible to forecast a single day several months ahead? The simple answer is it isn't! Usually it's not until the second week of December that confidence in the forecast begins to rise.
The 'computer says' forecasts are produced using data from the seasonal CFSv2 model and are updated daily. 'TheWeatherOutlook says' forecasts look at the data from the computer models and how the weather is developing during the autumn, and are usually updated weekly.
Please remember that and understand this page is primarily for fun, as the days grow shorter, the weather turns miserable, and the big day approaches.
Green Christmas called!
A chilly start is likely but through the day outbreaks of rain and milder weather are set to return from the southwest and steadily push northeastwards. In the north it is expected to remain colder and scattered showers could fall as snow over high ground. Despite this, for the vast majority in the UK a green Christmas is in prospect.
Daily updates will continue but now that a call has been made significant changes to the forecast are not anticipated.
