Dreaming of a White Christmas?

Welcome to our Christmas 2021 weather forecast. Forecasting even a few days ahead is tough in the UK so how is it possible to confidently predict the weather for a single day months ahead? It isn't! Usually things don't firm up until mid December but it doesn't stop us taking a fun look ahead to Christmas Day.

Welcome to the Christmas Day 2021 countdown.

The last widespread white Christmas in the UK was in 2010. December was an extremely cold month that year and according to the Met Office 83% of stations recorded snow on the ground on December 25th. Christmas 2020 brought a technical white Christmas to a few locations. Will we go one better this year?
