First snow, then cold for Christmas

The Poconos will have to be watched for a little freezing drizzle as just enough cold air may linger Friday before the next surge of warmth arrives to start the weekend. In fact, temperatures could struggle to get out of the teens on Christmas Day as a Polar Airmass moves in to the Central Plains and the Midwest.

We are certainly and understandably getting this question a lot, "Is it going to be a White Christmas?". The models can change and that would impact what we see. But, if this model has the best handle on the storm, with it playing out exactly as shown, a steady and heavier snow would be likely on Christmas day.

There is a system that has the potential to bring some snow to the area on Christmas Day, but not in the morning, Booth said.

Sunday - Christmas Eve: The front will clear off the Northeast coast and allow dry weather to return for most cities north of Washington, but rain will continue where it stalls out across the Southeast.

The extended outlook for the United Kingdom, between December 24 and January 2, reads: "The Christmas period sees a gradual transition from the settled conditions of previous days, to more changeable weather".

However forecasters have a different story to tell, with a band of rain due to push into Scotland from Saturday into Sunday, followed by an "unsettled" period due on Monday.

69 and out for Celtic as unbeaten run comes to an end
Congratulations to them on their victory". "We weren't so good today, we made too many mistakes to warrant getting a result". All credit to the players. "They put pressure on the ball and managed to unsettle Celtic as a team".

Latest models suggest December 25 could be rather chilly and showery in addition to the growing chances of snow.

The forecast may increase the odds of snow as Christmas gets closer.

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.

Whatever happens, the day after Christmas will have an appropriate chill in the air.

Bottom line, our chances of a White Christmas appear to be on life support.

AccuWeather forecasts disruptive travel for the holiday period December 21-26 from the Rockies to the northeast. Well, if you are one of those Christmas snow-haters, you'll be happy to know that our chances (in the Boston area) have been dwindling with time.
