As Jo said this morning, the weather is most definitely on the naughty list
this year after some really nasty weather yesterday, and more to come across the north of Britain during the rest of Christmas eve. For the latest hour-by-hour local weather info, check your local weather forecast
On to the big day, and alongside we have a precipitation type image from our NMM-6 model
- pink is snow, green is a rain/snow mix and blue is rain. It's over the hills where some sleet and snow is likely - so those up at higher levels in Scotland, Northern England, Northern Ireland, EIRE, Wales and maybe also Southwest England do have a shot of seeing at least a few flakes, and therefore an 'official' white Christmas this year.
In the main though it's a dry, chilly day (watch for frost and ice early and late), with the showers most frequent in the west and south of the country, and the best of the sunny spells further east. It'll be a lot calmer than of late for the majority of the country, but the north and east of Scotland will continue to see some gusty winds during the first part of the day at least.
Give Santa a final shake of 2013 to find out the chances of snow in your part of the country, and then that's it for another year - all that's left to do is to wish you all a very merry Christmas on behalf of the whole team here at Netweather, whatever you're doing I hope you have a great time.
