Dreaming of a NY white Christmas? Latest forecast offers hope

Dreaming of a NY white Christmas? Latest forecast offers hope

Ahead of a couple of tranquil and seasonable weather days today and Thursday, chances increase for a wintry mix by Friday, rain again Saturday that should change over to snow by Sunday, forecasters said.

Since 1894, there have been 4 occurrences of a White Christmas in Tucson.

In the Pacific Northwest, the Weather Channel and both of CNN models agree that Washington state will receive some on Christmas, but Seattle and Portland only look likely to receive rain with temperatures remaining above freezing, according to the projections.

Colder with a northwest wind, increasing clouds and a high near 30 degrees and a low tonight in the low 20s. "You guys are going to be right in the battleground", said Michael Carter, a meteorologist with The Weather Network, on Wednesday.

Also included are White Christmas chances for the state of IL from our state climatologist Dr. Jim Angel. The Canadian model also shows a chance of snow through the evening on Christmas Day. Keep an eye on that Christmas Day forecast! However, the cold air continues to build, and we will be looking at brutal wind chills Christmas night.

Temperatures for the rest of the week are expected to be milder than last week.

Gillham said there might also be significant snowfall Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

The Green Bay area is under a winter storm warning until 6 p.m. December 13, 2017 with 4 to 7 inches of snow possible.

What's most certain is a spell of bitterly cold weather that Scott says will settle in just after Christmas from Saskatchewan to all points east. An area of low pressure moving to our south will cause precipitation to overspread the state during the day. Well, dreaming of it only gets you so far.

If you think snow is rare in Texas, snow on Christmas is rarer than hen's teeth.

An up-and-down weather pattern is likely to bring some lake effect snow mid-week and then heavy rain with possible flooding by the weekend to parts of Upstate New York.
