We're in for a 'mild' Christmas: No snow and temperatures closer to spring than winter
Stop dreaming of a white Christmas - instead it's going to be unseasonably mild.
Christmas Eve will see frost, mist and fog slow to clear throughout the day and persisting in some areas. Otherwise bright with sunny spells. Winds will be light and a maximum temperature 6 °C.
For Christmas Eve night - and for those travelling - a patchy frost possible, but lifting as low cloud, mist and fog becomes extensive. Occasional drizzle developing, particularly around the Irish Sea coast and over the hills. Minimum temperature 0 °C.
On Christmas Day dull and grey for many with mist and extensive hill fog slowly lifting. It will be mostly dry, but a little drizzle is possible at first. Maximum temperature 11 °C.
From Boxing Day to Friday mostly cloudy, mist and drizzle at first. Still rather cloudy on Thursday and Friday, dry for much of the time, but occasional light rain expected.
No white Christmas this year. Instead, it'll be cloudy, dry, and mild for the time of year. We'll have temperatures we normally record at the end of April. pic.twitter.com/Jzh1X3zfzz— Barra Best (@barrabest) December 24, 2018
