Dreaming Of A White Christmas? Here Are The Odds

  • Dreaming of a White Christmas?

Friday will rebound a bit with highs near freezing but another push of cold air, even colder this time, arrives for the weekend. The snow line dips lower in elevation, as the major coastal cities in OR and Washington will remain above freezing during the day.

The storm, if it arrives as forecast, will come after Owatonna got its own taste of bitter December weather previous year.

"Right now it looks like a pretty changeable weather pattern", said Craig Evanego, meteorologist with the National Weather Service at State College.

The odds are still against a White Christmas in the eastern half of Virginia, but holiday snow is a definite possibility for some places within a day's drive to our north or west. This will bring in cold air, but perhaps drier conditions for Christmas Eve into Christmas Day. So these new predictions make snow about five times more likely than most years. I'm very confident we'll get a shot of arctic air coming in by Friday evening.

While strong winds are forecast in Scotland this week, elsewhere in the country balmier temperatures are expected in the run-up to Christmas, with an "exceptional" 16C on Tuesday or Wednesday, Mr Gaze said. And the chance of enough snow falling to cover the ground in white is even smaller at only 2 percent.

High temperatures on Saturday could reach near 60 degrees in parts of the area.

By contrast, the mountain resort of Davos, at 1,600m, has a white Christmas almost all the time.

As for snowfall, it appears there will only be a few chances for accumulating snow before the end of 2017.

Some forecast models are predicting a "wintery mix" storm of snow and sleet in the Hill Country on December 23, which could translate into a white Christmas for San Antonio and Austin if the weather holds out.

Keep updated to the forecast this week, especially those who are expecting to travel.
