Christmas Day 2018 weather forecast

Tue 25 Dec 2018

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 Weather Observations Website.

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