The festive forecast look unsettled with more showers, longer spells of rain and a gusty wind at times.

Here are the current odds for a White Christmas courtesy of Ladbrokes.

Nottingham 7/1

Leicester 8/1

Derby 13/2

Coventry 8/1

Birmingham 8/1

Wolverhampton 8/1

In order for bets to be winners, a single snow flake has to fall within the city on the 24 hours of Christmas day.

As for today a deep area of Low Pressure is building in the South West allowing the weather to go downhill over the next 12 hours.
