It will be a very cold, white Christmas in Great Falls”

It looks like central IL will have a white Christmas. Since snow around here is so rare for the Puget Sound lowlands, we typically think of ANY snow on the ground on Christmas as a white one.

But the rain, slush and snow don't start until Sunday night, giving last-minute shoppers a dry day to hit the stores.

The area of low pressure deepens over the Gulf of ME as it heads northeast, bringing a very strong southwest, then west wind behind it.

Anyone searching for snow probably will have to head north of New York City and across CT, he said. The forecast is for a high temperature of just 16 degrees on Tuesday.

Snow moves in south of I-70 around 2pm.

The highest snowfall totals will be in northern in, with decreasing amounts as you head south. Indianapolis and areas along I-70 will likely see 2 to 4 inches.

The very reliable European model showed a high possibility of snow. Thousands were stranded at the Stapleton International Airport on Christmas night.

Northern Westchester and Rockland counties in NY and parts of northwest New Jersey, including Passaic, Sussex and Warren counties are also likely to get snow. Cold air in place and moisture running over top of that air mass is a recipe for snow in the Pacific Northwest. An area along Interstate 80 could see up to 6 inches of snow accumulation and 50 miles per hour winds, causing whiteout conditions.
