We've made it! Here we go with the final update for 2019, it's a bitter sweet moment as it means Christmas is with us, but it's also a bit sad as this is without doubt my favourite forecast of the year. Still, only 11 months to wait until we start the 2020 forecast.
The snow risk never really got into gear this year, and as expected we'll be seeing a green Christmas this year, with just the tops of some of the mountains in Scotland at least seeing a flake or two of snow.
The animation below is from the hi-resolution UKV model again, and as you can see, there'll be a few showers to clear away during the first part of the night. Then it's just the north of Scotland likely to catch a few more into the early hours and the first part of Christmas day. Elsewhere it's dry, with some frost and perhaps fog patches early and late.
With that patchy frost, it'll be a chilly start to the day, and colder still during the evening, especially in eastern and central regions before cloud spills in. During the day, you'll be wanting a coat if you're headed out, with highs of 3-8c typically.
There's then more wet weather on the way from the southwest overnight and into Boxing Day - so keep an eye on the latest forecasts if you have travel plans.
And that's it. All that's left to do is to with you a very Merry Christmas from all of us here at Netweather. If you were hoping for snow, it's a shame it's not going to happen, but there's always next year - the first 2020 Christmas forecast will be online in November!
