Will it snow in Birmingham this Christmas? Met Office releases its long range forecast up to December 28

Will it be a white Christmas in Birmingham this year?

The Met Office has released its long range forecast for December, and it goes all the way up to Christmas Day and beyond.

The big question on everyone’s lips is: Will there be any snow in Birmingham this Christmas?

UK long range weather forecast

“Overall, through this period it is expected to be unsettled and changeable with milder and wetter than average conditions for most, bringing a risk of stormy conditions.

“Perhaps turning more settled in southern regions for a time nearer the start of this period, which will increase the risk of frost and fog when skies clear overnight.

Temperatures on the milder side for much of this period, but some short lived colder spells are possible.”

The potential milder conditions for the second half of December suggests that snow is unlikely for Birmingham this Christmas.

However, despite this, book makers have slashed the odds of a White Christmas in Birmingham.
