Winter weather to arrive this weekend
Despite the warm – although wet – weather, forecasters say the winter will start to arrive at the weekend.
The current mild temperature is being caused by a stable air mass stretching from the Atlantic to Eastern Europe. But that will move off by Saturday.
There could be snow arriving by the weekend – certainly above 1,000 meters - but possibly lower. That’s good news for the ski resorts.
But are we in for a white Christmas? Meteonews says it’s too early to say, but it has been eight years since there’s been snow on the plain at Christmas time.
