THE first White Christmas in years is predicted to occur this week bringing some winter joy at the end of a miserable 2020.
While most of the country will see milder temperatures and heavy rain, parts of the north are predicted to see snow on Christmas Day – the first time the UK will have had a White Christmas since 2015.
Speaking of the coming days, Met Office Chief Meteorologist Dan Suri said “There is still some uncertainty in exactly where the heaviest rain will fall but there is potential for some places to see as much as three inches”.
“On Christmas Day it’ll be dry and settled for most but cloud will increase from the northwest and could be thick enough for a few spots of light rain or even a short-lived flurry of snow in parts of the north,” he added.
