A wall of heavy snow could be heading towards London this December as temperatures are poised to dip even further in the coming weeks. After a relatively mild November, winter looks set to hit London full blast around mid-December when temperatures are forecast to plunge down to a chilly 5C.

Snow looks likely to head into the mainland from the northwest around December 13, when places like Birmingham and Oxford could see some heavy snowfall. WXCharts shows the wall of snow continuing down towards the southeast where it could disperse to areas around London including Essex and Kent, but London is certainly in its pathway.

BBC’s weather forecast for December 13 does suggest that London will see some sleet that morning, when temperatures are likely to be as low as 2C.

The Met Office, however, predicts light rain throughout the day and into the evening, followed by a misty morning the next day. December 15 is also expected to see some light rain throughout most of the day, as well as some mist.
