Here we are then, the final Christmas forecast update for 2014 - we hope you've enjoyed the ride towards the big day, and are already starting to enjoy the festivities!
We're now into a brief quieter and chilly period of weather which will take us through to Boxing day - it's worth keeping an eye on the forecast for Boxing day and beyond though as heavy rain, high winds and even some snow is likely to move in, which may cause some disruption. A weather watch has already been issued.
For Christmas day itself, the chart we're looking at today is the precipitation type chart for 9am from our NetWx-SR model, and as you can see there is some sleet and snow on there. In the main though the day will be a bright, dry but chilly one with frost early and late. Showers will move south through the day, tending to become lighter as the day wears on, and they will be wintry up over the hills and maybe even lower down in parts of Scotland.
So it's not a winter wonderland, but it's going to feel seasonal enough and for those of you who may have had a cheeky bet on a white Christmas, there's enough there to keep you interested in at least some parts of the UK.
Whatever the weather though, we hope you have a fantastic Christmas period, give Santa a shake to find out the chances of snow falling in your part of the country, and don't forget to join us for the New Year forecast from Boxing day onward. Merry Christmas!
