The Met Office has released a long-range forecast ( up until January 6 2023 at the time of writing) which gives us an idea of whether we'll see snowflakes this Christmas.

Between December 13 and 22, snow showers are predicted to continue across the northeast of the UK.

The weather forecaster has reported that it will feel "bitterly cold" in places with moderate to strong winds likely in the south and west.

The majority of us will continue to experience cold conditions with wintry showers mainly along the coasts.

Ahead of the big day, temperatures are likely to be below normal but they may increase in the south later on during this period.

Looking at December 23 to January 6, the Met Office says that conditions may be widely changeable with some spells of rain, and at times snow.
