Expecting a White Christmas, Londoners? Well, don’t.

According to forecasters, London will see clear skies and chilly temperatures but sadly, no snow.

In its weather forecast, Met Office said: “Cold on Christmas Day, some showers for northern and northeastern parts, sunny elsewhere. Cold start to Boxing day, wet and windy weather arriving from the west later, lasting through Saturday.”

The last time London saw a White Christmas was 2010.

The Met Office said: “It was extremely unusual, as not only was there snow on the ground at 83% of stations – the highest amount ever recorded – but snow or sleet also fell at 19% of stations.

“We also had a white Christmas in 2009, 13% of stations recorded snow or sleet falling, and 57% reported snow on the ground.”
