Rainy, mild, and breezy today, light snow on tap for Christmas Eve

12 Latest Forecast Snow To Continue Falling All Morning

The week of freezing temperatures is colder than usual, but not by much. Northern sections of MA could receive up to 8 inches of snow. Roads were slick and troublesome Christmas morning, especially on less traveled roads.

A wayward polar vortex may show up in Ontario, and we will be just south of it. You might see some flakes mixed with rain as Christmas Day nears, but accumulation isn't likely. Moisture is spreading across New Jersey with it, and precipitation will begin around 7 p.m. tonight.

And yes, Virginia- believe it or not, the National Weather Service has an actual definition of a white Christmas, "1 inch of snow on the ground on Christmas morning". Wind gusts piled snow four to eight feet high along the coast. Expect total snow amounts of 2 to 4 inches with a high of 28 degrees and a low of 17. Most of the rain was over by Christmas Day, but the day was damp and mild with temperatures in the 50s. Cold air in place and moisture running over top of that air mass is a recipe for snow in the Pacific Northwest. Temperatures will not warm up above the teens for most of the week with overnight lows at or below zero.

And for Christmas Day, the National Weather Service forecasts a 70% chance of another two inches of snow. All snow, with slightly higher snowfall rates along Interstate 495 around 8 a.m.

The eastern White Mountains and North Country will get more snow late morning into the mid to late afternoon as the exiting storm takes a last swipe with a snow laden backlash.

The cold will be king after Christmas, possibly right through the New Year. So late tonight night through early Sunday morning allow extra time to get your destination until temps rise above freezing by midday with some sunshine and temps above freezing.
