Rain/snow early then dry for Christmas

The rain/snow mixture will come to an end early Christmas morning. The likelihood of having a White Christmas is slim to none, since we have to have an inch of snow on the ground by Christmas morning. At the most a light dusting, but unlikely, on elevated surfaces for the northern counties. Due to ground temperatures above freezing any snow that reaches the ground won’t last long. This is good news for anyone traveling, little to no travel impacts are expected from this system. Majority of Christmas, skies will become partly sunny with highs reaching into the mid to upper 40s near 50. Overnight lows will be in the 30s.

If you’re traveling home on Wednesday, most of the day will be dry with a slight chance of rain in the afternoon. Rain chances pick up during the evening and overnight as storm system moves in. Rain will be likely on Thursday and at times it will be heavy downpours. It will also be windy with sustained winds at 15-20 mph and gusting up to 30. This is likely to impact travel as visibility could be low at time.
