It's bad news for Britons who are looking forward to having a white Christmas this year.
Mark Wilson, Met meteorologist confirmed: "There's a higher chance of getting snow over Easter in the UK than there is at Christmas."
However, he added that even without much snow, the weather is more traditionally suitable for Christmas than the “horrible, cloudy, mild” weather that the country experienced for the past few years.
"White Christmas is a bit like the Grand National - it's a good bet for your once-a-year punter," says Jessica Bridge from Ladbrokes.
"Odds are shorter than perhaps they should be because lots of people bet on it for romantic reasons."
