No white Christmas as rain and storm could hit UK

20 December 2017

Heading into the afternoon on Christmas day, the model continues to show snow.

According to the map, a cold front will be moving down the United Kingdom from the northwest bringing in colder air.

For now, the forecast for Christmas Eve is high temperatures in the 30s to lower 40s, with a chance of rain or snow showers or a mixture.

BBC weather have issues a monthly outlook, and it looks like the cold frosty starts we've been having will give way to more unsettled conditions. Friday's storms along a strong cold front usher in a huge change: cold air rushing in and a chance of some wintry weather on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Downpours and thunderstorms are possible through the Deep South, while the rain may turn to slushy wet snow in the mountains of Virginia late in the day.

"In what can only be described as typical British weather, the rise in temperature in the final run-up to the big day means the odds have now been slashed into just 3-1 from 10-1 that Christmas Day 2017 enters the record books as the warmest ever".

The technical definition of a white Christmas is having at least an inch of snow on the ground on December 25, regardless of whether it fell on that day. If this is all snow, it would be at least 2.5 inches.

Conte praises contributions of Hazard, Willian and Pedro
Chelsea were paired with Barcelona in Monday's draw, with the first fixture to take place at Stamford Bridge on February 20. Conte told the press on Tuesday that, "Morata is out because he's a bit exhausted and there is a problem in his back".

Much colder air will move in to the region over the weekend and straight through Christmas Day. Uncertainty is still high, so we can still easily be sitting around in short sleeves and shorts on Christmas Day.

Friday looks cold, especially it the morning, but dry.

We'll be able to better reap the benefits of the warm sector on Tuesday, as southwest winds increase, the sun has a little more luck at breaking through the clouds, and temperatures respond and soar to near 50 degrees by afternoon. Areas along the coast will be dry and mild until Friday night.

Coral Spokesman John Hill said: "The betting suggests there will be a White Christmas somewhere in the United Kingdom this year, with the major Scottish cities the most likely to see snowfall on Christmas Day".

For Dec. 23, that could result from rain and fog in the northeast, with pockets of ice and snow over parts of the northern Appalachians. Both models eventually show very cold air coming to most of the USA over the next week to ten days.
