Warm temperatures ended hopes for first United Kingdom white Christmas since 2010

Drivers are asked by RCMP to stay off the deteriorating roads as a result of the snowstorm

For an official white Christmas there must be at least 1 inch of snow on the ground by 7 a.m. Christmas morning.

Temperatures are not expected to get above freezing at most locations this week, according to the weather service.

Christmas Day will be sunny and 39 and down to 24 Monday night.

Saturday night, look for patchy blowing snow under mostly cloudy skies that will gradually become clear.

Snow and icy conditions on Friday and Saturday made travel hard, with numerous reports of vehicles off the road.

It did not snow last Christmas Day in the city, records show.

Southeast Nicholas County, including the City of Richwood, is expected to receive two and five inches with its advisory expiring 9 a.m. Christmas morning. Slow down and use caution while driving.

The spokeswoman said: "It's quite likely that parts of Scotland, particularly the southern uplands and possibly the central hills above a couple of hundred metres or so will see some snow".

"In wake of the heavy tourist rush, especially during Christmas and New Year, the Indian Railways had also started holiday special narrow gauge trains for the tourist to reach Shimla".

The National Weather Service urges drivers to be prepared for reduced visibility at times. Winter weather advisories have been issued for our area until 1 AM.

And while it is not expected to snow on Christmas Day, increasing winds and falling temperatures are a bigger concern, as are single-digit to negative wind chills, meteorologists at the weather service said.

So far this winter, snowfall in the Rochester area has been more or less on par with years past.
