Dreaming of a white Christmas?

Can we expect snow this Christmas? Until a few days before the big day it's usually not possible to say with any certainty, but that doesn't stop us taking a fun look ahead as we count down to December 25th.   
 
 

Christmas 2014: Mostly green called

Christmas weather forecast introduction

Welcome to our dedicated Christmas 2014 weather forecast page. The 'computer says' section provides a daily update and 'TheWeatherOutlook says' section is usually updated weekly and suggest a very different picture. Who will be right?

 

TheWeatherOutlook says

December 25th is now well within the range of most of the computer models and they are showing a consistent enough picture for a call to be made on the weather prospects.

The 2014 Christmas is being called as green for the vast majority of the UK population, but a risk of scattered wintry showers in northern regions means a few locations here could record a White Christmas. 

Despite being mostly green a coldish day is expected with temperatures ranging from about 2C (36F) in the north to 7C (45F) in the south.

Enjoy counting down the days to the big day and check regularly for updates. Remember that forecasting specific days at longer ranges accurately is considered next to impossible in the UK with current technology so the Xmas outlook should be viewed as fun until December. Also check out what 'The computer says' in its daily update below.

Probabilities of snow falling on Christmas Day
North of Yorkshire / Lancashire: 15%
South of Yorkshire / Lancashire: 5%
