We're in for a 'mild' Christmas: No snow and temperatures closer to spring than winter

Santa may not need the thermals this year.

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.
