    'Very unlikely' was the quote I heard.

    Though of course its more likely if you like up a mountain in Scotland or Wales.

    like it's ever going to snow here (i think people would panic if it did and think that the world was ending)

    I had one a few years ago when I was in the US, Christmas eve morning nothing, then in the early evening there was just under a foot of snow, was lovely!

    Here we only get crap anyway, I'd rather it didnt snow.

    Ideally it needs to be between 0-2°c to snow.

    Its possible but we'd need some polar maritime air - but there isn't much chance at the moment.

    That's news to me. The last white Christmas that I saw was in 1986. The pictures are all in an album now.

    According to Metcheck the chances have gone up to about 60%.

    Rather optimistic I think. But we can but hope.

    Maybe. But then it still means there's a good chance that it won't.

    The parents live in Queensbury up above Halifax, so they'll have snow. In June.

    It's not allowed to be a white christmas. we have too much travelling to do this year around christmas and new year and don't want to be stuck in the highlands in the middle of nowhere!

    Mr Roll, please cut those pictures down to a size where they might onto the screen. I don't surf the Internet in widescreen, you know! (That said, they're good pictures. And my broadband connection means they downloaded nice and quickly!)

    Don't worry, I don't think it's supposed to snow anywhere in the next few days, in fact it's supposed to get milder, but wet and windy.

    I had one when I live in Bwlchgwyn (the highest village in Wales) but that was a good few years back now.

    For someone who hates the cold as much as I do, I quite like snow... But it doesn't happen often here, though it's been twice in the previous 3 years, so I guess I can't complain. It doesn't look like it will snow this year, since it was pretty warm till the end of Nov, but you never know. The weather has been a lunatic lately.
