White Christmas

Thundery wintry showers


At the moment I think there is a 70% chance for eastern coastal parts of the North East (yes that means my area!) and 80-90% for inland parts of the region. The current snow cover doesn't look like thawing significantly until Christmas Eve, and unless that channel low gets far north enough on Christmas Eve to draw in a modified easterly, it probably won't thaw significantly on Christmas Eve either!

In the coming days I expect many media forecasts to be expressing a desire for a warm-up by Christmas, so here's my latest revision to the "At least it will be mild" version of Bing Crosby's song:

I'm dreaming of a mild Christmas,
Just like the ones we usually know.
Where the stratus glistens
And children listen
To hear south-westerlies blow.

I'm dreaming of a mild Christmas,
With every Christmas card I write,
May your presents please every child,
And may all your Christmasses be mild.

Personally I am hoping that this snow does stick around till Christmas- but I won't mind if it melts on Boxing Day.

Just managed it- unfortunately it was all icy by Christmas Day, but it still looked festive and picturesque and covered 80-90% of the ground, so it counted.

And there's still enough for a "snow day" today!
