Calm Christmas Eve Before More Winter Weather

First Alert: Ice Tomorrow and Snow for Christmas

Snow begins to arrive late Christmas eve, continuing into Christmas Day. Timing is still an issue right now, as is the strength of the storm.

Another Christmas Eve snowstorm dumped almost 24 inches of snow in Denver, Colorado, according to the Denver Post. Wind chills stay in the upper teens and very low 20s. It was the first white Christmas on record for northeastern Florida to North Carolina-and traffic accidents on icy roads caused several fatalities. Once they reach the lower levels of the atmosphere and the ground, which are both below 32 degrees, a layer of ice forms.

Two rounds of winter weather down, one to go for Christmas Day. And other facts about the weather on Christmas Day in the Electric City. Wind gusts to 40 miles per hour expected.

However, it will not drop in time for a strong possibility of snow on Christmas Day, with average temperatures expected to be around 7 degrees on Monday. The details are still sketchy, but with cold air in place, there would be an opportunity for some snow depending on the ultimate track and evolution of this system. Rain will mix with snow overnight into early this morning.

There will be several hours of steady snowfall in the northern half of the state. Hastings, Nebraska recorded over 9 inches at a weather service office that year, breaking the previous record from 1945. By 4:45 p.m. on Sunday, 2.6 inches of snowfall had accumulated in Peotone in Will County, an area that was expected to get up to 6 inches of snow. Rahway, New Jersey got the most snow, 32 inches to be exact. (Courtesy Tropical Tidbits) Christmas snow will fall this year in much of Southern New England.

Police also urged motorists to use caution when approaching snow plows, which will be out clearing roadways.
