Snow, Ice, And Freezing Rain... And Still Watching for Snow Christmas!! :D

Are you ready for all the details on the Snow, Mix, And Freezing Rain on the way?? Well, so am I so lets get to it!

Quick Cast.....

Monday we will start out with a few snow flurries early, More steady snow showers will move in after 2:pm EST. Currently looking for 1" to 2" Inches of snow possible. This will continue through out the night before changing over to a mix early Tuesday morning. Highs will be around 31* degrees with lows that night around 29* degrees. Winds will be light between 3 and 5 mph.

Tuesday we will start out with a mix / freezing rain early. Currently looking for less then a tenth inch of ice accumulation at this time. Highs Tuesday will be around 34* degrees with lows that night around 23* degrees. Winds will be slightly more breezy between 10 and 20 mph.

Take a look at this precipitation model below.

This is a "Precipitation Type" model. This is looking around 4:00am EST Tuesday morning. You can see the change over from all snow to freezing rain isn't far off. I'm expecting the change to be between 4:am and 6:am EST Tuesday morning. Right now I believe that a 1" to 2" Inch range fits most of the WLFI viewing area. With less then a tenth inch of ice accumulation expected. Still things will be slick and you should always allow extra time!

I will be watching this as it unfolds. And I will keep you posted as needed.

Now how is the White Christmas forecast looking?
That's right it is still looking good! I'm still keeping a strong 65% chance for a white Christmas this year! I'm still tracking a snow system starting Christmas Eve with left over snow showers on Christmas Day! I don't want to get your hopes up just yet however this could be a 4+ Inch system! (I'm watching things closely).

I will continue to watch both systems this week and over Christmas and I will keep you posted! At this time a white Christmas is looking within our reach!! :)

God Bless!

Justin isn't there a 100% chance of a white Christmas? Wont the snow currently on the ground still be here by Christmas insuring a white Christmas regardless of additional snow?

Well, we have a few days at least with 34* degree temperatures! So if we didn't see any new snow then I would think maybe a patchy white christmas.

Plus we could use a fresh new snow for Christmas! ;)

I'm really giving the storm over Christmas Eve and Christmas the 65% chance.

I'm "sure we will" have a white christmas For the first time in 3 or 4 years!
