Mix of wintry weather could make travel hard on days before Christmas

Mix of wintry weather could make travel hard on days before Christmas

Plenty of us dream of a white Christmas - thanks so much, Irving Berlin - but what are the odds of actually getting one? Does snow mean nothing to you other than shoveling and snow blowing?

The two more reliable long-range weather models, the GFS and European, are calling for three systems to impact our region over the next seven days. On Christmas the high will climb to near 27 degrees, according to the weather service. Rain showers may switch back to some light snow Friday night and then a few snow showers coming in for Christmas Weekend.

"What we can say is we can't rule it out at this point", National Weather Service meteorologist Ted Ryan said to the Fort Worth Star Telegram.

The Weather Network says most regions that now have snow on the ground can count on keeping it on Christmas Day.

"With the cold air in place, and temperatures sort of plunging into early next week with Christmas Day following on Monday, we could see another system develop, and some of the models are certainly indicating that", he said.

For Mount Lemmon, the odds of a White Christmas are just 25%. Who cares if the snow falls before 7 a.m. or if it arrives in the afternoon? Those in Southeast Iceland should however expected a "red Christmas" - the Icelandic term for a Christmas without snow. We have nothing different for today, tomorrow and even Friday.

WWE announces first-ever women's Royal Rumble match
As Stephanie McMahon said, a women's Royal Rumble is long overdue and should provide for some great entertainment . While not all WWE rumors come to light, this one finally did.

The last time it snowed on Christmas in New York City was in 2009.

With this front, there will be rain from New Orleans to NY.

Snowfall on Christmas day is the quintessential symbol of the holiday season-which bodes well with the idea of friends and families curled up by a fireplace with hot chocolate.

But, for the most part, Brits can expect increasingly unsettled weather through Christmas with heavy rain and strong gust likely. At this writing, I would rank a snowstorm as a very low (but not impossible) chance.

In any given year, the Old Pueblo has a 3% chance of a White Christmas.
