Are you hoping for a white Christmas this year?

According to the Met Office forecast for the next couple of days, we could be looking at a soggy Christmas rather than a sparkling one ...

The outlook for the North East predicts temperatures of between 3 °C and 10 °C on Christmas Day, with a chance of rain from lunchtime through to the evening.

We'll be treated to a mild Christmas Eve tomorrow, with temperatures set to stay steady at around 9°C, though there is a small chance of showers.
