Christmas day will be warm, wet and windy across Suffolk this year - but it certainly will not be white.

Christmas eve will begin the string of a wet few days, with, after a bright start, rain and strong winds expected to remain throughout the afternoon.

Weatherquest forecaster Adam Dury said that the forecast was not set to improve over the festive holiday.

“It’s not looking like the best few days over Christmas,” he said. “It’s not looking very good for Christmas Day.

“After a bright start, it’s not looking the best.”

“There’s no chance of a white Christmas,” said Mr Dury. “It’s all too mild.”

Boxing Day is forecast to be cloudy, with rain feeding to the north, but with bright spells. Temperatures are expected to rise further, with highs of 14 degrees Celsius (57.2 degrees Fahrenheit).

Suffolk has experienced unseasonably warm weather over the past few weeks, and forecasters say the balmy weather could continue until into the New Year.

The last time that a flake of snow fell on Christmas Day in Suffolk was in 1970, while Norfolk can boast of Christmas snowfall in 2010.
