Friday 16 December 2011 at 10:27
With snow starting to develop in much of the country the White Christmas Odds are proving as popular as ever but as is often the case the bookies are predicting that there will be no White Christmas in most parts of the UK.
White Christmas Odds Shorten After Pre Christmas Snowfall
Bet365 were forced to cut their odds on a White Christmas today after snow started to fall in many parts of the country and they are still joint best price on a White Christmas in London, Bet365, Betfred and Stan James all go 4/1 that there is a White Christmas in London whilst the odds on no White Christmas in London are just 1/6 with Betfred. Aberdeen and Edinburgh have much more chance of seeing snow over Christmas, Aberdeen is 5/2 with Coral and William Hill to have a White Christmas whilst Edinburgh is 3/1 with Coral. You can bet on many English cities to have a White Christmas, Cambridge, Newcastle, Oxford and York are all 5/1 with William Hill whilst Birmingham, Bristol, Liverpool and Manchester are all available at 6/1 with Coral.

Will The River Thames Freeze At Christmas?
A White Christmas might be possible in many parts of the country but much less likely are record temperatures this winter. The warmest temperature recorded at Christmas is just over fifteen degrees centigrade and you can get 14/1 with SkyBet that it will be even warmer than that on Christmas day whilst the coldest temperature is slightly under minus eighteen degrees centigrade and SkyBet are offering 22/1 that it is even colder than that! Those sorts of temperatures would most likely bring the country to a standstill and Paddy Power are offering 100/1 that Big Ben stops working on Christmas Day because of frost whilst you can get 175/1 with Paddy Power that the River Thames freezes over on Christmas day and that people ice skate on it.
