The possibility of a white Christmas for most Brits seems to be ruled out but for one lucky 3-year-old it is guaranteed.
Kelvin Kirkwood was treated to a 'snow fall' on Christmas Eve morning after his mother entered him into a competition at the local indoor snowsports centre.
Ten tonnes of 'fresh snow' was dropped off in the family's front garden after Kelvin was entered into an online prize draw by his mother.

Suzanne Kirkwood, 34, invited all the local children for what looks to be their one chance to play in the snow this Christmas.
'We are all so shocked and delighted,' she said. 'I only entered the competition two days ago, and can’t believe we have been so lucky to win.
'Kelvin has already got his coal and carrots ready to make a snowman, and all the kids in the street have been invited to come along and play.'
Suzanne nominated Kelvin for his caring and loving nature, and for always helping his mum and dad around the house and the younger children in nursery.
Suzanne added: 'It’s such a great
feeling knowing we can wake up on Christmas morning with a guaranteed
White Christmas – what a great surprise!”
prize draw was run by Xscape indoor snowsport centre and Snow Factor in
Braehead. Entrants were offered the chance to get a phone call from
Santa himself through the local radio station and each participant was
put not the draw.

Owner of Snow factor, Jamie Smith said: 'It seems Scotland will be seeing more rain than snow this Christmas, so we are delighted to be able to make the Kirkwood’s family Christmas wish come true.
'There’s nothing quite like waking up to snow on Christmas morning, and a garden full of it will certainly add to their Christmas experience.
'With guaranteed fresh snow conditions, Scotland’s newest snow sports destination is the ideal location for skiers and snowboarders of all ages to learn and hone their technique – whatever the weather.'
