Stormy Weekend Ahead: Snow Likely Christmas Day

Drizzle in today's forecast, black ice possible tonight

While some snow or sleet may greet the area early Friday, experts say this will quickly turn to rain as temperatures hit the low- to mid-40s later in the day. However, in Berkshire County, Franklin County, and northern Hampden and Worcester counties, ice accumulations of a quarter to half an inch are possible. A storm system will move across southern Missouri late in the day, spreading moisture to the north. Rain is possible mainly along and south of I-44 with a slight chance as far north as HWY 50 Friday evening and overnight. It will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 46 and southwest winds from 5 to 9 miles per hour.

Another low drags rain across the east on Thursday but it should be drier in the south and west although there could be more wintry showers in the north. "Model guidance continues to suggest a solid 1-2" of rain for most of Eastern Kentucky. But that's exactly what we have coming up for Christmas.

"Abundant Gulf of Mexico moisture will surge northward and be lifted by a strong cold front and upper jet stream support", notes the NWS. Morning lows are forecast to be around 60° with highs in the mid 70s on Saturday and 60s on Sunday. The chance of precipitation is 60 percent. "On Christmas Eve you had one centimetre of snow on the ground ... and then all of a sudden before that observation was made Christmas morning, you got about five centimetres of snow", he said.
