Christmas Day

Christmas Scene

25 December

Will this year be a white Christmas? The last official white Christmas was in 2010, when snow was widespread across Northern Ireland, Scotland, parts of Wales, the Midlands, north-east and far south-west England.

If it snows in your area, you can become a volunteer observer and record your snow observations on our snow map.

Check the weather forecast for your area over the festive period. 

In the mean time, Merry Christmas from the Met Office!
