UK set for a wet and windy Christmas Day
December 18, 2015
Pack away the woolly hats and scarfs and open your umbrella instead, the much loved snowy Christmas scenes that we all wish for the holiday season look set to evade us again this year, with heavy rain due to move in from Tuesday.
The Met Office advised: “The weather is expected to remain unsettled throughout the rest of the week and into the Christmas period with longer spells of rain across all parts.”
The weather continues on from the run of unseasonably warm weather we have been experiencing throughout December, with bookmakers offering odds of 3/1 on this Christmas Day being the hottest on record.
Those living in the North and West can expect the majority of the rain, the warm balmy temperatures are being caused by the southerly weather front coming up from Northern Africa with temperatures in the most northern reaches of Scotland set to be in double figure highs.
The beginning of January is likely to be very much of the same, with mild and unsettled weather looking set to continue with the Weather Network saying "2016 welcomes back the wind and rain, the colder air not returning until later in January and into that cold February. Of course long-range forecasts are subject to change but with the milder start and colder end to the season it's a winter of two halves."
