Everybody's dreaming of a white Christmas this year, but here in the UK, the romantic winter landscape can be hard to come by.

Usually, us Brits are left disappointed by mild, grey and rainy Christmas days.

However this year things could be different!

Bookies and forecasters have predicted that certain parts of the UK could enjoy a few flakes of the white stuff this year.

As ever, predicting the weather can be tricky but the Met Office have given their forecast ahead of the festive weekend.

Read on for the latest Christmas day weather predictions…

Will it snow on Christmas day 2021?

The Met Office says that some parts of the UK could be set for snow on the big day and bookies agree.

Forecasters predict that snow is most likely to fall in the UK's areas of higher ground.

Where will it snow on Christmas day?

The Met Office expect snow to fall in parts of the Pennines and the Southern Uplands.

For Christmas Day, the Met Office claims that the north and northwestern Scotland will be cold, while the south of England will relatively mild.

Meanwhile, the middle of the country can expect to see some rain and snow!

Forecasters say that snow is not generally expected outside of these areas, with sunshine in the cold north and rain the middle of the country.

However there is some contention with the Met Office's prediction.

Earlier this week Ladbrokes put Birmingham odds-on for a white Christmas, with Newcastle and Edinburgh also odds-on with the bookies.

The betting firm also gives solid odds for:

  • Aberdeen
  • Glasgow
  • Leeds
  • Liverpool
  • Belfast
  • Cardiff
  • London
  • Bristol

Even bookmaker Coral has given London a surprising 3-1 odds for a white Christmas.

Harry Aitkinhead, a spokesperson for Coral said: "We are expecting snow to fall this Christmas Day and give some parts of the UK the White Christmas they're dreaming of.

"Edinburgh and Newcastle are the most likely destinations for a sprinkling of the white stuff, whilst it is a 3-1 chance for London to get snow on the big day for the first time 1999."

Who prevails between the weather forecasters or the bookies remains to be seen, but even the hope of a dusting in parts of the country can be more than enough to brew up some Christmas spirit.
