The question on everyone’s lips is. “Will it snow on Christmas Day?”. I’m afraid the prospect at the moment isn’t looking good. Latest forecasts suggest temperatures around 7°C and windy with showers. A bit of a let-down especially for snow-lovers like myself.
Thursday will be very mild with spells of rain or showers. It will also be quite windy at times. Highs of 13°C.
Overnight and into the following morning, the rain pushes away and introduces much colder air leaving Friday as bright, windy and fresh with wintry showers. The wind making it feel much colder than Thursday. Highs of only 7°C.
The unsettled theme continues into Saturday with cold, breezy conditions bringing some heavy showers with hail possible but milder during the day. Highs of 7°C.
All change again into Sunday. A band of rain sweeps in from the west early on but it turns patchy and it turns milder again with southwesterly winds back in charge. Windy too. Highs of 10°C.
Looking ahead into Christmas Week and it seems weather sourced from the Atlantic stays in charge, briefly. So expect mild conditions with showery rain at times to start then maybe colder on Tuesday before milder again for Christmas Day. There is a slight hint of something colder on or after Boxing Day which might bring snow.
I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2015.
