The answer is no, we’re sad to report.

According to the Met Office, Christmas Day is actually set to be pretty mild- with temperatures around the 10°C mark in most places.

But it will also be wet, with deep Atlantic depressions bringing “bands of heavy rain” to the region.

Motorists should also take care as a thick blanket of fog is set to envelope the UK over Christmas weekend.

This will be followed by a period of “changeable” conditions as we move towards New Year, with “incursions of milder weather” but also “colder interludes”.
