For the first time this winter, there’s a chance of snow.
Before you start having flashbacks to the Beast from the East, however, just bear in mind that it’s an admittedly vague chance of snow. The forecast for Tuesday, November 20 is fairly unremarkable, save for this one little icon, a teasing little portent of fluffy white flakes. The BBC is positively giddy with excitement, just look!
Tantalising, isn’t it? But whilst we’re happy to spin a rosy picture of wintry loveliness – something that looks like this, perhaps – the reality is that said snow is more likely to materialise as sleet, and only for a couple of hours. Not everyone shares the Beeb’s unbridled enthusiasm, as the Met Office offer the chance of frost, and the Weather Channel just think it’ll be chilly. Spoilsports.
Still, if you’re looking for snowfall, you could always head to this festive market, where snow flurries will arrive on the hour. Otherwise, it’s a case of keeping your fingers crossed for flakes. You know, just like every year…
