The prediction is based on data stretching back to 1860 and shows when the first snowfall is expected.

Usually, the heaviest and most likely day of snowfall is January 17.

Of course, this can only ever be a guide, and the Highways Agency and Network Rail are not going to start making plans based on this prediction.

But it gives an indication, at least.

Metcheck says that while its predictor won't guarantee when you will see snow, it will show you the most likely day for the biggest snowfall to occur.

The Met Office said: "The confidence for the outlook into December is low, but the general trend suggests typical early winter weather with periods of persistent rain and showery interludes.
