Significant cold coming our way and will last through Christmas

Significant cold coming our way and will last through Christmas

There will be days ahead that are in the 50s to near 60, and others that stay below freezing.

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that this year hasn't been the greatest when it comes to snowfall - we've had less than 5 inches so far this year when we should be well into the two-digit mark by this point.

The National Weather Service's website isn't willing to be so bold.

"Will it snow, or won't it snow for Christmas?". The forecast models continue to change a bit from run to run and until any storm systems enter the US data network, this will continue to be the case.

This is the last day for above-average temperatures in the eastern USA ahead of a cold front.

Christmas Day may find Virginia stuck somewhere in the middle of those two air masses, and the holiday forecast is also stuck with some uncertainty for now. Two years ago it was almost 70 degrees on Christmas Eve.

The Met Office said more information on Christmas Day's weather would be known later this week, as things stand there is no sign of wintry weather for Dundee.

While strong winds are forecast in Scotland this week, elsewhere in the country balmier temperatures are expected in the run-up to Christmas, with an "exceptional" 16C on Tuesday or Wednesday, Mr Gaze said. Those in Southeast Iceland should however expected a "red Christmas" - the Icelandic term for a Christmas without snow. The last time there was a white Christmas in Texas was 2012. Of course, those are the two most important days for holiday travel, so pay attention to future forecasts as the weather picture hopefully comes into better focus.

The Weather Outlook said 70mph gales could come on Boxing Day, just missing Christmas day itself. Granted these areas have a lot more snow on the ground than Boston, but still, this will be a significant blow to the existing snow-pack in the entire region. Sunday (Christmas Eve), may start out with lows close to zero, while the afternoon highs barely reach the upper 20's or low 30's.

This cold-particularly the wind chill factor-may prompt wind chill advisories later this week into Christmas Day.
