After what seems like an eternity of frost, freezing fog and an easterly wind, a prevailing Atlantic, south-westerly has returned now, making it much warmer, and wetter.
No snow for Christmas day I'm afraid (no surprises there then), very probably a decent amount of rain though.
Boxing Day looks better though - with a little luck, we'll get a nice day then.
Today, however, will give us the last full moon of the year, on christmas eve, this year.
Call it what you like...
Here are some of the names used for it:
The Cold Moon.
The Long Nights Moon.
The Oak Moon.
The Wolf Moon.
The Frost Moon.
The Moon Before Yule. (A bit out this year?)
Or maybe even... make up your own name for it, which is may be more relevant to you than Celtic names for it, Native American names for it, or Pagans names for it for example...
The December full moon always has a high trajectory in the sky, often making it appear relatively small.
I hope its clear enough to see it, though I'm not sure it will be....
