Met Office weather forecast for Liverpool in December

Thursday, December 1 - Tuesday, December 13

The Met Office predicts that the beginning of December will be cold, dreary and cloudy in Liverpool. Thursday will see the start of overcast weather that will hit the city over the course of the first week or so. There will be brief sunny spells in the early afternoon, though the remainder of this period will see chillier temperatures no thanks to regular strong gusts of easterly winds. Highs of 7C expected.

Wednesday, 14 December - Wednesday, 28 December

The Met Office said: “Confidence is low for this period, but overall settled and relatively dry weather is more likely than stormy weather. At this time of year frost and fog are common, and the chance of these, along with below-normal temperatures and spells of wintry precipitation, is slightly higher than usual. Conversely, heavy rain and strong winds are less likely than in a typical December.”

When was the last white Christmas in Liverpool?

Liverpudlians will be hoping for a repeat of the winter of 2010, which is still considered as the coldest Christmas in the history of the UK. Inches of deep snowfall hit Merseyside, as well as the entire country, over the festive season, which led to widespread disruption to travel, as well as the closure of schools.
