A white Christmas is not on the cards, according to Met Éireann.

Temperatures so far this month have been far higher than the average December.

They rose above 13 degrees in many places yesterday, and are set to do the same this afternoon.

The weather is set to be mixed for Christmas week.

We asked Joan Blackburn of Met Éireann what are the chances of a white Christmas?
