    The run-up to Christmas is perhaps among the most amazing times of the year, even for us grownups. With Christmas celebrations, the finest arrival calendars to open every day in December and the idea of the wedding day itself.

    However, this year we perhaps have another thing to eagerly anticipate– a whiteChristmas Yes, that’s right– snow on Christmas day, which hasn’t really occurred considering that 2010 in the UK.

    With the temperature level dropping over the next week, bookie Coral exposed it has actually slashed its chances for a white Christmas, from 2-1 to 4-5– implying it’s most likely than it has actually been over the last couple of years that we’ll awaken to layers of white snow on the 25 th of December.

    A representative for bookie Coral John Hill stated: “The odds say it will be all white on the big day. We are less than 100 days away from Christmas now, and with temperatures set to fall rapidly over the upcoming days, the early odds suggest we could be set for a White Christmas this year.”

    He went on to include: “Not only have we cut the odds on it ending as the coldest on record, but we are not ruling out snowfall.”

    If you’re consumed, like us, with the very best Christmas movies on Netflix— you’ll certainly seem like you’re starring in one if we have a white Christmas this year. And a weather condition specialist has actually even validated that the temperature levels will drop over the next week.

    AlexanderBurkill, senior functional meteorologist at the Met Office, informed the Metro: “We will have cold, northerly air moving in which is why the weather will feel more autumnal this week. Temperatures will be a little below average for the time of year with highs for most in the mid-teens Celsius, although some chillier spots in the north may stay in single figures.”

    According to science, the temperature level needs to be at or listed below freezing, which is an extremely low 0 ° C, in order for it to snow, and for it to decide on the ground, without the snow melting.

    Eeek– seems like it’s time to store those summertime clothing and look for your gloves, bobble hat and huge coat– as we’re set for a cold one!

    Fingers crossed for a snowy December 25 th though!
