We've made it, Christmas eve is here so it's time to start eating mince pies, opening the Xmas Baileys and peeling potatoes.
Christmas this year will certainly be more green than white, and unfortunately there will be some more rain about in flood affected regions too which isn't the best news.

The main weather type of the day will be sunshine and showers - some of the showers will be heavy, maybe even thundery with some hail in the south (a faux White Christmas?!), with any wintriness limited to the high ground of Scotland and perhaps also Northern England.
Temperatures will still be on the fairly mild side in the south with 10-12c possible here, but elsewhere 4-8c will be the more seasonal high. Wherever you are it'll be breezy, if not blustery during the showers so definitely a day for a coat if you're heading out for a stroll after lunch.
For the final time this year, give santa a shake to find out the risk of snow across the country on the big day. As I type he's well on his way around the world and has already delivered over 620 million presents - follow his progress on the Google Santa Tracker
On behalf of the team here at Netweather, I'd like to wish you a very happy, healthy Christmas, and spare a thought for those affected by the flooding.
