Waking up on Christmas morning to a blanket of fresh snow sounds like the stuff of childhood dreams - but when was the last time Norfolk had snow on December 25?

The last time a white Christmas was recorded in Norfolk was in 2010, the first since 1995, after snow fell in Weybourne at around 6pm

Boxing Day in 2010 saw plenty of sunshine and temperatures remained at around 1C for the majority of the county.

Although the Christmas Day snow did not settle in Weybourne, it is still recognised as a white Christmas by the Met Office.

In the UK, the official definition to qualify as a white Christmas is for any snow to be observed falling in the 24 hours of December 25.

Will Norfolk see a white Christmas this year?

Sadly, no. The forecasted temperature for Monday is around 12C according to the Met Office.

It is predicted to be even milder than last year when temperatures dropped to 5C and there were some wintry showers.

Norfolk was hit with snow towards the end of last month which saw flurries in Dereham, Wymondham and Norwich.

The county will continue to experience windy conditions on Christmas Day with gusts of up to 30mph.

However, to follow the 1995 and 2010 trend of 15-year gaps, perhaps Norfolk's next white Christmas will strike in 2025...?
