Met Office long range weather forecast

The Met Office has released a long-range forecast ( up until January 14 2023 at the time of writing) which gives us an idea of whether we'll see snowflakes this Christmas.

Between December 21 and December 30, we can expect spells of rain and stronger winds which will mainly impact central and southern areas of the UK.

However, some northern areas are likely to see wintry showers, the Met Office has said.

Beyond the North, the national weather service has predicted that any snow will probably be restricted to hills though there is a chance snow could fall to lower levels.

As we approach New Year, we can expect more settled weather with perhaps overnight frosts and some morning fog patches.
