Press Release:- OUT OF DATE



The Isle of Wight’s Weather Centre meteorologist David Carrington is predicting a unseasonably warm Christmas Day. 

UPDATED: Thursday 22nd December 12:00

Our local Island weather expert has been monitoring the synoptic setup for the last couple of weeks. "The official Christmas Day forecast is showing warmer temperatures, high's of 14c well above average for the time of year. I'm also seeing a very slight chance of rain in the early hours of Christmas Day then later in the afternoon.”

Earlier in the week the local weather centre was forecasting a winter storm (strong winds with some rain), this now seems to of dissipated somewhat so out of a number of possibilities, the current forecast seems to be the most likely! Keep checking the weather centre’s website throughout the Christmas period for updates.

"The chances of the Island seeing a White Christmas is currently standing at a <2% chance of snow and is likely to fall to 0% over the coming days".
