Snow maps show exactly which parts of the UK have got a White Christmas

Advanced snow maps have revealed exactly which parts of the UK are waking up to a magical White Christmas today.

Moreover, those missing out today need not worry with heaps of the white stuff also forecast for Boxing Day.

According to WXCharts, in England only parts of the far north around the Lake District and the Pennines will see snow today, with just a centimetre or two landing there.

The proper dumping is taking place in Scotland, where yesterday the Met Office were forced to issue a yellow-level snow warning.

In the Highlands, north of Edinburgh but south of Inverness, there will be roughly three or four inches on the ground today and throughout the festive period.

Two more yellow-level snow warnings have now been issued by the Met Office for Boxing Day, covering both England and Scotland.

One covers the Highland regions where snow continues to fall.

The other covers southern Scotland and northern England, reaching as far south as Bradford and Leeds where an inch or two could fall.

As part of the warnings, which will be in place until noon tomorrow, the Met Office have said: "Snow and strong winds will probably affect some higher elevations, leading to possible disruption, mainly to travel.

"Some roads and railways likely to be affected by snow or ice, leading to longer journey times by car, as well as by bus and possibly train services.

"Some short term loss of power and other services is possible."

They have also published information about keeping homes warm and travelling safely in ice and snow for those in the impacted regions.

Temperatures today will peak in the south west of England, with highs of 12C in the afternoon.

Southern-central England and Wales could reach 9C, with London and Northern Ireland hitting 7C.

Elsewhere it will be far chillier, with highs of just 4C to 5C in the Midlands, East Anglia, northern England and Scotland according to the Met Office.
