‘Snow chance’ of a White Christmas, say forecasters

first_imgAnyone dreaming of a White Christmas might have to put a special request on their Santa list if the latest word from Met Eireann is anything to go by.Forecasters have dashed hopes of snow on 25th December this year.With eight days to go until Christmas Day, Met Eireann experts said it’s too early for a definitive forecast. However, the current outlook is damp and mild. “Our latest guidance suggests it will be relatively settled, mostly dry with temps about average,” said forecasters.Meteorologist Liz Gavin told Independent.ie: “So far there’s no indication in our chart of snow for Christmas, as the temperatures are far too mild.”Gavin said we need temperatures of around 3C to get snow, but mercury is not expected to drop so far by next week.The statistical likelihood of snow falling on Christmas Day is once every 5.9 years. The last recorded snowfall on 25th December in Ireland is 2010. ‘Snow chance’ of a White Christmas, say forecasters was last modified: December 17th, 2018 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:CHristmassnowweatherlast_img read more
