Storm Eva has done her thing today, with high winds and heavy rain moving through. Not the best news for those in flood affected areas, and unfortunately there is more rain to come through the coming days. Thoughts are with you if you're struggling with the effects at the moment.
As I type this (in the Highlands) there is snow falling outside, and it's not just here, so some will be seeing a white Christmas. For the majority though it will be green, and becoming milder through the day after a chilly start, accompanying the milder air will be rain and gusty winds too.
For the final chart of the year, we're again using Netwx-SR model and it's the precipitation type map. The pinks/greens on there are the snow, and blue the rain. It's only a single hour in the day, so not showing the whole picture, the rain will head it's way up from the southwest through the day, the wintry showers in the north will have affected the hills of the north of England and north Wales during the early hours, before migrating north to just affect the north of Scotland into daylight hours.
For those on the lookout for snow, there is a possible second bite of the cherry as the rain moves up and meets the colder air in northern England and the southern half of Scotland, wth some sleet or wet snow possible for a time.
And that's about it for the 2015 Christmas forecast, we started back at the start of November and the forecast hasn't really changed since the start, so not the rollercoaster it can sometimes be. As always though, it's been an absolute pleasure. All that's left to do is to wish everyone a very merry Christmas.
