Not much of a chance for a White Christmas

Weather Blog

Clearing and chilly night ahead, warming for the Holiday

Clouds will continue to linger south of 460 until the middle of the evening, then clearing skies are expected.  Temperature forecasts are going to be the only real challenge as the models are all over the place with temps.  Based on the direction of the wind and the sky cover I expect the temperatures to continue to be well above our normal 46 for this time of year with highs in the low 60s most locations.  The challenge is a nice one since the variety of options from the models are all still above normal.  The bottom line is that there will be plenty of sunshine to go around each day until next weekend.  Tonight is expected to be mostly clear and temps should be in the mid to upper 30s most locations.  If the clouds linger a bit longer in Southside, we should only get down into the 40s.  As for the holiday here is how I am breaking it down.

Christmas Eve Day:  Mostly sunny skies with some lingering cloud cover south and temps should make it into the 60s.

Christmas Day:  Partly cloudy with temperature readings in the upper 50s to low 60s.  Not a great day for snow, but driving conditions should not be a problem when you are going over the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house.  Some indications are for a little cooler air on Wednesday with forecasts in the 50s, which is still above normal.

The parameters for this graphic are snow that actually falls on Christmas Day and accumulates over an inch is “Snow on Christmas”. Snow that is on the ground, and is more than an inch, from a previous storm is still a White Christmas in the eyes of the governing body.

Still mild and dry into the end of the week with no rain in sight until Sunday.

Stay Safe.
