Christmas Weather Update

December 17, 2012

Weather Forecasts

In my last update I suggested that the chances of a white Christmas were fairly low thanks to low pressure looking likely to be the dominating pattern. Unfortunately things haven’t really changed.

Christmas continues to look like it’ll be dominated by low pressure bringing showers or longer periods of rain. Some computer models however have been toying with the idea of a brief Northerly incursion as low pressure clears Eastwards, this brings the risk of sleet/snow showers moving into Scotland and perhaps Northern England for Christmas/Boxing day. Details on this however remain uncertain and we won’t really be certain until closer to the forecast period.

I’ll have an update for you in a couple of days. Meanwhile, the monthly forecast has just been updated.

    I wouldn’t be too sure… Last few GFS Outputs are consistently favouring a deep depression to form over Western Europe… Fingers crossed, this could pull us in some considerably cold air 😀

    This current weather is the complete opposite to that forecast by many for December. Is this evidence that forecasting beyond 7-10 days is a complete waste of time?
