As we have talked about for the last two weeks, our confidence is high that our weather pattern is turning more active with storm potential near Christmas. It brings a secondary, even colder, blast of Arctic air in by Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Temperatures will take a plunge into the teens and single digits through the day Saturday with wind chills again likely below zero.

"While most of the rain missed us today, we see a lot of it coming this week: "as much as 3" to 5" (and in a few spots even more than that) through Friday.

Friday looks cold, especially it the morning, but dry.

Consequently the snow line will rise to over 1,000m, with heavy rain forecast below that level in many places on Friday night.

Coral Spokesman John Hill said: "The betting suggests there will be a White Christmas somewhere in the United Kingdom this year, with the major Scottish cities the most likely to see snowfall on Christmas Day".
