A statement posted online yesterday said: “High pressure is likely to dominate from mid December, with fairly ‘blocked’ conditions becoming established across the UK.

The report was released as temperatures were set to plunge across the country this week – with a chilly -3 predicted in some areas.

Snow is synonymous with Christmas, but many Britons rarely see it on December 25. The last official white Christmas was in 2010 when snow was widespread across Northern Ireland, Scotland, parts of Wales, and the Midlands, north-east and far south-west of England.
