UK Set For Its First White Christmas In 12 Years According To New Long-Range Forecast

Get the Baileys and the hot chocs at the ready, and make sure your tather has relinquished responsibility of the thermostat as it looks like some of God’s Own Country might be getting a dreamy White Christmas this year along with the rest of the UK.

It’ll be the first UK wide white Christmas in over a deceased, although parts of the Yorkshire Dales experienced snow on Christmas Day last year.

A brand new long-range forecast has stated that, although we are having a mild start to autumn, temperatures are expected to dip as low as -8C within weeks, which means we could expect snow and frost as early as next month.

The last white Christmas was back in 2010, and it looks like we are expected to have a white Christmas and bookies have odds on snow for 25th December.

Coral has shared its odds of a white Christmas this year 4/5 dropped from 2/1 thanks to the new forecast.

Coral spokesman John Hill said: “The odds say it will be all white on the big day. We are less than 100 days away from Christmas now, and with temperatures set to fall rapidly over the upcoming days, the early odds suggest we could be set for a white Christmas this year.”

Jim Dale, a meteorologist for British Weather Services, has given his views on the temperature drop this week saying: “We are going to get something of everything in the next few days, a complete smorgasbord of weather.

“There will be wind, rain, showers and, from the start of the week, a rise in temperatures in southern parts of the country.”

Last year the Met office expected a white Christmas to hit the North including Yorkshire, and that never happened. So, I guess we’ll just have to wait and see whether we’ll be waking up to more than just a hangover on Christmas Day this year.
