With Christmas Day just around the corner, experts have revealed the chance that snow will fall in Norfolk on December 25.

This year, Norfolk residents will have to settle for a bright instead of white Christmas, with experts forecasting a "nice day" and temperatures will reach highs of 7C and lows of 1C.

It has been nine years since Norfolk has seen snowfall on December 25 and it looks unwise to bet on that changing this year.

Dan Holley, meteorologist at Weatherquest based at the University of East Anglia, tweeted: "Still some uncertainty in the detail but for most areas [in the UK] it's unlikely to snow."

On the map he shared, it showed a less than 10pc chance of the white stuff falling in Norfolk.

Christmas Day will bring a rare bit of dry weather over the festive period as rain will dominate Christmas Eve, with bright spells occurring in the afternoon before drying up overnight.

A Weatherquest spokesman said: "It will be a crisp start to Christmas Day with frost in some rural places but not a widespread frost. It will be a pleasant day for Christmas.

"The nice weather is not going to last with a wet Boxing Day. We are happy to have a nice Christmas."

Last year's weather was not to dissimilar with dry weather with highs of 7C and lows of -2C.
