London snow: When will it snow in London, is it going to snow? | Weather | News


Christmas is already in full swing for many in the capital. Chilly weather and a huge array of festive markets have made London a festive delight. But will there be snow this year?

The Met Office has predicted fog will descend over London next week, with heavy rain and fierce winds expected.

Elsewhere in the UK, snow is forecast to fall on higher ground – especially in northern England and Scotland.

While blustery winds will batter the south, with coastal areas feeling the worst of the gales.

As we head into the end of December, it may feel colder at times – you can read the full long range weather forest from the Met Office here.

But London is looking as if it will miss out from a wintry dusting of snow.

According to Met Check, which calculates when snow is likely, predicts there is a 25 percent chance of snowfall in the capital on Tuesday, December 17.

While the rest of next week is suggesting no snow will fall, the probability of snow on Tuesday sees a sudden spike.

There is then no snow expected after this date, until Thursday, December 26 when there is again 25 per cent chance of snow predicted.

Accuweather, which specialises in long-term forecasts, has also predicted the exact dates we can expect snow in London.

Their forecasts suggest December 29, January 1 and 2, plus January 8 and 9, will see snow fall in the capital.

But while Londoners may be disappointed with the lack of snow this Christmas, there is hope for eager snowman builders.

The Met Check calculator suggest London will see the most snowfall for this winter in one day on or around Tuesday, February 25.

However, odds suggest we could see snow this week – does that mean the December 17 prediction could come true?

Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Commuters looking to travel home from London for Christmas might just see their plans scuppered by snow if the latest odds are anything to go by.”
