White Christmas?

As it looks right now we will see about three rounds of winter weather before Jolly Ole St. Nick slides down the chimney.  I will break down each of the storms.

The models are always changing, so make sure to check back in for an update on snow totals in the coming days.

First storm: Friday night until Sunday morning.  This system has been fairly consistent in the recent models.  It looks like most of the area will see at least an inch of snow.  As of right now, a few locations could see 2 or 2.5 inches.

Second storm: Sunday night into Monday night. This system has been showing gradual building and strengthening. This system is showing an additional inch of snow in recent models.

We will see a cold break of high pressure for the middle of next week, but the third system, and strongest of the systems, looks to arrive later week.  It should start Wednesday night and last through Christmas Day and into the weekend as flurries.  With the fact that this system is so far out, models are still getting a grasp on it and have not been completely in agreement.  The majority of the models have shown this as all snow.   A few other models have shown this starting off as a wintry mix and then back to snow.  If the system stays as snow, we could see several inches, giving us a White Christmas.  If the system shifts gears at all, we could see this turn into a rain event, and greatly decrease our snowfall.  It will need to be watched, but right now we are trending towards a White Christmas....  As always, check back on here to get an update on the predicted snowfall totals for the coming systems.

8 days left!!!
