Dreaming of a white Christmas?

Hoping that Jack Frost may grace us with his presence when the big man comes down the chimney? Looking forward to snowball fights with your mince pies? 

If the answer is yes, you’re likely to be disappointed.

Despite the recent spell of snow, chances of a white Christmas appear slim, according to the Met Office.

After the cold snap we’ve been experiencing, this week is expected to be relatively mild, with dry weather expected across the country in the run up to Christmas.

High pressure will dominate the weather in the south, leading to a chilly start to the week and the potential for some widespread fog to form on Monday night.

A good deal of dry weather is expected across the country through this coming week and in the run up to Christmas, although some rain is likely at times, mostly in the north.

Chief Meteorologist Steve Ramsdale said, “After a taste of winter with frost and some snow in the last couple of weeks, high pressure looks to dominate the weather this week with a lot of dry weather in the forecast and only a couple of short periods of rain.”

Mr Ramsdale warns of chilly nights, with travellers maybe needing to watch out for fog at the start of the week.

“As for Christmas itself, well it’s still a week away but the early signs are that most of us will have a green Christmas rather than a white one and there’ll be some rain around. That said there may be some wintry showers in the north.”

It’s still too early to predict whether a named storm will affect the UK after Christmas, although the Met Office is expecting “more changeable” weather, with spells of wind and rain.
