Your Christmas Day Forecast

For Christmas, an upper level low will be moving into the Texas area, putting down rain. There could very well be some snow in the western parts of the precipitation shield of this upper level low. The precipitation shield may actually extend farther east than what is shown here on our map. Up in the Northwest, some snow can be expected from a weak disturbance in Canada affecting that region. The entire Northeast should be in for a could Christmas. The Great Lakes will be dealing with some scattered lake effect snow showers, which won't accumulate to much of anything. However, some cities could be dealing with flurries throughout the day from these showers. Down in the Southeast, an isolated sprinkle of rain cannot be ruled out, but an abundance of rain is not looking likely. Out in the Central Plains, a strong high pressure system will eventually build in to make for a quiet Christmas.

Merry Christmas!
