White Christmas Expected For Much Of New England

Christmas Eve Day will start off dry with a blend of sunshine and clouds. In 2012, 2014 and 2015, we saw snow on Christmas Day, and in 2011 we saw a big snowstorm just three days before.

Showers will begin to taper off later tonight, though with temperatures dropping below freezing there is the potential for a refreeze overnight.

There could be a few flurries Christmas morning, otherwise it's a flake-free day as morning clouds give way to increasing sunshine on Christmas Day, which also looks rather windy and cold.

Then, it's all about the very strong wind - blasting out of the west and ushering in some colder air to set us up for a very cold week ahead.

The peak time for snowfall will be from 5 tonight to 5 a.m. Sunday, when the snow should have moved beyond the area. The low could be around 18 degrees.

A broad swath of the U.S. won't have to dream of a white Christmas as winter weather bears down on much of the Northwest, Midwest and Northeast on Sunday. The record-breaking storm resulted in the first white Christmas for some Texans, according to the National Weather Service. The backside of the system could bring a quick 1-3 inches of snowfall due to some convection.

Christmas dawned sunny and cold with more snow on the ground than I could ever remember seeing. Thousands were stranded at the Stapleton International Airport on Christmas night.

On Christmas Day, wind gusts of 40 miles per hour to 50 miles per hour are possible, making it feel even colder. An Arctic front moving over freshly fallen snow will deliver obscenely cold weather for the rest of the week. New snow accumulation of around an inch is possible. The forecast calls for snow and blowing snow during that period, with 4 -7 inches accumulation possible.
