Will it be a white Christmas?

So with Christmas coming up just next month we thought we would answer the question.

Well sort of…

With far to much time to accurately give a forecast we will look at historic data to show the likelihood of such event.

Many of you may know that statistically in the UK the chance of a white Christmas is less than a white Easter so lets take a look at what chance there is for where ever you are…

Early WARNING for Heavy Snow next week!

Much of the United States has had a mild time of it lately with temperatures 2-6 degrees above average in particular around the Lakes & the North East. 

Those balmy days will soon be forgotten as all that looks set to change with a freezing northerly which will bring a sharp decline in temperatures next week.

The ECMWF model anticipates temperatures to nose dive from around the 6TH of the month as  the first major cold incursion takes place. This spell could last well beyond then as the cold air sweeps as far South as Tennessee.

At this range details of snowfall is to far off to predict however should such a significant cold spell take shape many areas will be at risk of large snowfalls with a particular risk of large lake effect falls. 

We will bring an update with more details later in the week but for now its one to be aware of.
