With the festive season fast approaching, speculation over whether we could be getting a white Christmas this year has already begun – and it’s looking like good news for snow-loving Brits.
The Met Office said there is a chance of snow falling in the UK on December 25 in its latest predictions released this weekend.
Weather models are still to be updated closer to the day but the latest outlook says “some snow” could be expected over high ground in the north.
A statement posted online yesterday said: “High pressure is likely to dominate from mid December, with fairly ‘blocked’ conditions becoming established across the UK.
“This weather pattern would lead to drier than average conditions and lighter winds.
“Interludes of more unsettled weather are expected to be fairly limited, although these could still lead to some snow over high ground in the north.
“It is likely to be rather a cold period, with temperatures below average for the time of year, and a continued risk of overnight frosts.
“Whilst it may be relatively mild at times, temperatures on the whole through this period are likely to be below average.”
