Mild temperatures and stormy showers to dash hopes of White Christmas

Dreaming of a White Christmas?

Lows will stay above freezing overnight.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that this year hasn't been the greatest when it comes to snowfall - we've had less than 5 inches so far this year when we should be well into the two-digit mark by this point.

For now, the National Weather Service is calling for highs around 50 degrees and a 50 percent chance of rain here on Monday.

With the Christmas holiday coming up, there will be plenty of motorists on the roads later this week.

Christmas Day is looking to be wet, but dreams of the first white Christmas in NY since 2009 hinge of when cold air arrives.

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. Below is what the model shows for temperatures in the afternoon on Christmas eve.

The Met Office said more information on Christmas Day's weather would be known later this week, as things stand there is no sign of wintry weather for Dundee.

Looking for a surefire way to get a white Christmas?

In Owatonna, which does lie south of that band, Keclik said the current forecast calls for about five inches of snow between Thursday and Friday.

BUT... We've now gone a week without any snow reinforcements, and in fact, we have even had a few light rain events.

Most of the snow that falls on Sunday will be left behind from the strong low pressure sweeping through Saturday. The cold air plunging into the center of the country is bringing colder than normal temperatures.

In terms of weather record-keeping, a white Christmas is typically defined as having 1 inch or more of snow on the ground on Christmas Day, and the Carolinas' chances of that happening throughout history are nearly zero. They will generally see the same type of weather as central Pennsylvania - a warmup into Christmas Eve, then colder.

Christmas Day will also be dry and cold the highs bouncing back a bit to the middle 20s.

AccuWeather forecasts disruptive travel for the holiday period December 21-26 from the Rockies to the northeast.
