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: Westerly flow

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

The third update slightly increases the chances of snow falling in northern areas on Christmas day, but generally a fairly average picture is expected. This means a predominantly westerly flow with the best chance of snow falling over higher ground in northern parts of the UK. Snow over low ground would not be expected in this type of set-up.

Recent years have brought a range of weather during the festive season to the UK, and there have been some notable cold spells. This year at the present time background signals look fairly neutral but things could change during the autumn.

Enjoy counting down the days to the big day and check regularly for updates. Also check out what 'The computer says' in its daily update below.

Probabilities of snow falling on Christmas Day
North of Yorkshire / Lancashire: 20%
South of Yorkshire / Lancashire: 10%
