Parts of the UK could see a White Christmas!

View of Jubilee Gardens and Westminster Palace during the winter holidays in London.

Just over a week until Christmas and it looks as though it may be a white one for some!

The weather pattern being shown is largely Westerly however occasional Arctic incursions look likely with one being shown as we head in to Christmas day.

The cold air will be modified somewhat by the warm Atlantic due to being pushed south to the West of the UK prior to pushing across our shores.

The areas at the biggest risk will be the usual suspects with Scotland, NW England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Northern parts of Ireland seeing wintry showers.

Unfortunately any settling snow at this stage looks unlikely but even a short period of snowfall should help to make it feel extra Christmassy.
