Dreaming of a White Christmas?

Welcome to our Christmas 2017 weather forecast page. Forecasting even a few days ahead is challenging in the UK so how is it possible to confidently predict the weather for a single day months ahead? The answer is it isn't! Usually it's not until the second week of December that things firm up but that doesn't stop us taking a fun look ahead to Christmas Day.

Christmas weather forecast

TheWeatherOutlook says is based on computer models and the weather patterns during the autumn.

The Computer says uses raw computer model data and is updated daily.

TheWeatherOutlook says

Five weeks until the big day but that's still a long time in meteorological terms. Since our last update the medium range computer models have backed away from pointing towards a blocked outlook. A spell of unsettled and quite mild weather is looking likely next week. By early December a downward trend in temperatures is shown but it isn't looking particularly cold. Therefore update 12 reduces the chance of a white Christmas in both the north and south of the UK.

But please remember:

1) There is a long time for things to change

2) Even during milder than average winter months cold snaps can bring snow

 

Chance of snow on Christmas Day

North of Yorkshire / Lancashire:15%
South of Yorkshire / Lancashire: 9%

Update 12 18/11/2017
