What are the chances of that elusive snowy seasonal celebration this year?
THE LATEST FORECAST IN DEPTH
The latest data suggests a fairly mild Christmas day with low pressure in the Atlantic and high pressure close to the east, feeding up very mild air from the south and southwest. Please note that this is still a very long way out, which means a lot is likely to change between now and then.
This info will be updated again on November 15th
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT THIS PAGE
Our White Christmas forecast will be updated once or twice a week through November and every day throughout December, although the forecast will likely change a fair amount as we approach the 25th.
For it to be counted as an official White Christmas we need 1 snowflake, yes that’s right just 1 snowflake to fall on the Isle of Wight on Christmas day.
The White Christmas forecast is the product of multiple long/medium range computer models which include the JMA Seasonal, ECMWF Seasonal, the med and long range GFS, CFS and the CFS2. The data is fed into our very own software and the forecast is the end result!
This forecast is mostly just for fun, but there is at least some science behind the predictions!
