Odds don’t look good for a white Christmas
THERE is only a 12 per cent chance of snowfall on Christmas Day in Greater Manchester, according to new analysis.
Using official Met Office figures, Barratt Homes has looked at the past 25 years of winter weather to determine what conditions were most likely to experience throughout the festive season. And it’s looking very unlikely that it’s going to snow in Manchester, according to their predictions.
The Met Office say it is currently too early to predict exactly what the weather will be like on Christmas Day.
But forecasters are currently predicting a mild, possibly unsettled day on December 25.
Steven Davey, Industry and Infrastructure Manager at the Met Office, said: “We were delighted to help with Barratt Homes’ fun Christmas campaign that celebrates the positive side of snowfall in the UK.
“While we know in the UK that weather history isn’t a great way of predicting the weather future, we’re pleased our historical data can give people a nostalgic trip down memory lane to Christmases of the past.”
