A White Christmas May Be On The Cards This Year
Bookies have “slashed” the odds of a white Christmas to 2/1, as reported by The Sun, which also states that Arctic air will bring “widespread snow and ice” just in time for Christmas.
Todd Crawford, chief meteorologist at The Weather Company, predicts Brits should brace themselves for the coldest weather since the bitter cold snap of 2012-13, in which most of the UK saw “widespread snowfall”.
