The site predicts December 25 will see highs of 10C and lows of 2C, while conditions will be “very windy with low clouds”.

The most unsettled conditions will likely be across northern areas.
“Here, showers or longer spells of rain are likely with snow likely across higher ground and possibly falling to low levels at times.
“Strong winds are possible across the north, especially around coasts.
“Further south, it is likely to remain somewhat drier with fewer showers, but there is even a slight chance of some wintry weather here.
“At points when winds ease any clearer and calmer conditions that prevail will lead to some cold nights with frost and fog.”
