Snow falling on Christmas Day is perhaps the most iconic festive scene imaginable.
But those hoping for a White Christmas in 2019 look set to be sorely disappointed - after an East Anglian weather forecaster revealed the incredibly low chances of the white stuff falling on December 25 this year.
There has been talking of a big freeze over the festive season for months, with some forecasters predicting cold snaps during the 2019/20 winter season.
Temperatures have been a little colder than usual compared to previous years, with several nights of frost leaving behind icy pavements and car windscreens.
But Dan Holley, meterologist for Weatherquest, said there was "little change" to previous predictions that snow wouldn't fall on Chirstmas Day.
