Will we have a white Christmas in the UK?

Forecasters have said a White Christmas is possible in parts of the country as temperatures remain cold.

But he added: “We can’t rule out festive snow anywhere.”


Colder conditions are expected over the period, with a risk of winter showers, mainly in the north. Temperatures are likely to be near or just below average.

Under high pressure, frost and fog are likely overnight, with fog slow to dissipate in the morning, according to the Met Office’s long-range forecast.


Forecasters predict that December will see fog and frost early in the morning.

The north will experience more changeable weather.


January is generally the coldest month of the year in the UK.

Most parts of the UK will see rain, while London and parts of the south could see snow, forecasters say.

Temperatures should reach between 2C and 7C.
