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?
December 25th is now within the range of the GFS/GEFS medium range forecasting model. Despite this it is too early to be entirely confident about the prospects.
The current update increases the chances of snow falling on Christmas day in the north and makes no change for the south. A continuation of the current fairly mobile pattern is forecast during the run up the big day. Colder incursions remain more likely in northern regions with milder air more frequently pushing into the south.
Given the general outlook the best chance of seeing snow falling on the big day remains over higher ground in northern parts of the UK. Because of the mobile and changeable outlook a call on the Christmas day weather may not be made until December 22nd this year.
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.
