As November approaches, more snow is on the way, just as expectations for a ‘White Christmas’ in the UK rise. After the first week of November, snow is anticipated to fall for up to three days in several regions of the UK. According to WXCharts, a cold-weather front will swoop in from the overnight and drop up to half a millimeter of snow in the early hours of Monday, November 8.
Flurries are forecast in Scotland in a few days for Fort William, Portree, and Stornoway.
As the day progresses, the region of forecast precipitation expands, with further snow expected in Fort William and east of Portree the next day, Tuesday, November 9. According to the weather prediction, Tuesday will see a bigger snowfall, maybe up to 2cm. Along with the possibility for snow, a huge band of rain will sweep over the nation, reducing the likelihood of settling.
It comes as bookies anticipate that cities will have a ‘White Christmas’ this year when the weather becomes very cold. William Hill opened its book on the UK experiencing a holiday season like those in Hollywood films and chose two locations with the best odds. Edinburgh and Newcastle, both in the north of the United Kingdom, are at the top of the list, with Leeds Bradford, Britain’s highest airport, at 6-1 to see snow on Christmas Day.
Last year, some fortunate Brits were treated to a dusting of snow, but for the most part, it was a normal chilly and cloudy day, with the last documented snowfall for the big day itself being in 2017. The last widespread White Christmas occurred in 2010, which was nearly a decade ago.
For the most precise prediction, the Met Office can predict whether we’ll receive snow up to five days ahead of time. Each year, snow falls on an average of 3.5 days in December. And also, Edinburgh and Newcastle Airports are now listed at 4-1 for snow flurries, followed by Leeds Bradford Airport, Birmingham, London City Airport, and Dublin at 6-1.
