There's no Christmas cheer from our weather forecaster Kate Haskell. Storm Barbara is on its way and the only presents it'll bring are wind and rain.
The second storm of the winter season has been named by the Met Office as Storm Barbara.
She is due to arrive on Friday but the good news for us is that we're not directly in the line of fire.
The north of the UK will bear the brunt of the wind and rain but it still be rather unsettled and very windy across the Westcountry.
Christmas is not looking very christmassy at the moment at all. All fairly soggy, wet and windy rather than deep, crisp and even.
Christmas Eve looks to be dry at the moment before the next deluge of rain arrives in time for Christmas Day and with temperatures still doing well there is little chance of it turning to snow.
A Met Office weather warning for fog is in place this morning (19/12) with the South West being one of a number of regions affected.
They say driver must be careful on the roads; "Please be aware of potential delays and hazardous driving conditions. Some improvement may take place by Monday morning, as thicker cloud edges in from the east."

The Exeter Chiefs were among those affected by heavy fog across the West Country earlier today.
The Chiefs were returning from France after yesterday's victory in the European Champions Cup against Bordeaux Begles.
But they were diverted to Newquay Airport on the way back after the worst of the fog left them unable to land at Exeter Airport.
Driving in rain is 30 times more dangerous than driving in snow. 15 motorists were killed in wet weather crashes in the region last year.Read the full story ›
