MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE
After the heaviest rains since remnants of Harvey in early fall, attention now turns to colder temperatures and the chance for a few flakes to fly just in time for the big holiday.
Cold, arctic air continues to filter into our region as a strengthening upper air disturbance moves right through the region. Light rain showers will break out initially this afternoon before quickly mixing with and turning to snow showers during the afternoon and evening. Some accumulations are possible. If any, expect generally a coating to 1/2 an inch, mainly on grassy and elevated surfaces.
Better chances for an inch or two of snow like upstate, along and north of I-64.
