A White Christmas - Part 3

It's only 7 days until Christmas. Hard to believe but it seems like every year it comes faster and faster.

The pattern is a bit more interesting prior to Christmas Day with the development of a significant snow storm moving across the NE/US and producing 6-12inches of snow on Friday. However, there is the chance snow will develop again on Christmas eve for this region. Chances are a low center that does develop will tend to move through the St Lawrence River Valley through Christmas Eve and rain/mixed precip will fall in this region. However, as colder air comes in behind it, Snow and Snow showers could spread as far east as NY city.

There is the chance of some snow showers and very cold temperatures across the Great Lakes region Christmas Day, but some mixed precip includuing freezing rain may move in during Chrimas Day night. Further west snow and snow showers will tend to develop across the central and northern Rocky Mountains as a strong low pressure area off the WA/OR coast on Christmas Eve slowly weakens.

We will take one more look at the chances of a White Christmas across the country in a few more days.
