Will we have a white Christmas?

I'm afraid not! It's looking highly unlikely we will see snow over Christmas. Low Pressure is bringing us one band of rain after another and fairly mild air for December too. The Met Office has issued a Yellow Alert for the rain this weekend. Here's how it's looking in more detail over the next few days.

Today we have some respite from the rain, we are sat in-between two bands of cloud so expect dry and bright, occasionally even sunny weather! Temperatures are just above average at 8c and the wind will remain light. If you are heading out this evening it will stay dry until the early hours when the rain makes headway.

The rain will travel north and eastwards overnight and the wind will pick up too. It will be frost free tonight.

SATURDAYBy tomorrow morning all of us will be getting a good soaking with some very intense pulses of persistant rain. We could see around 30mm tomorrow. The wind will be strong tomorrow too with gusts of 35mph possible. The rain will not be as heavy come the afternoon and we will see some drier breaks. Temperatures will be above average at 12c in some locations but it won't feel very mild in all the elements.

SATURDAY NIGHTSaturday night will be wet once again as the next band of rain moves through.
