So no White Christmas, which isn’t a surprise, despite what some of the media promise. The chance of us seeing a White Christmas is about 15% and we’re actually more likely to see a White Easter than Christmas, especially when Easter comes early. We were last below zero on the 25th back in 2010, and the last White Christmas was 2009. If you’re a snow- and cold-lover then you’re going to have to be patient.
Thursday: Rain spreading east across the region during the morning. This will ease into the afternoon but it will stay cloudy with some localised drizzle. Breezy. Max 8°C
Friday: Another band of rain swings in and quickly goes through to be followed by a few bright spells and it will be turning milder. Breezy. Max 11°C
Weekend: Very mild but dry
Saturday: High pressure will influence our weather for a few days, dragging in warmer southwesterly winds. Dry with some bright spells. Max 12°C
Sunday: Bright spells, breezy, especially to the west, but notably very mild for the time of year. Max 14°C
Outlook: Staying mild and settled with temperatures above average for a few days before rain returns with some very windy spells to start the new year.
I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very merry Christmas and all the best for 2020. Thanks so much for all your tweets and kind words throughout the year.
