Winter Weather Advisory for Southeast NY & Northern Fairfield County

First Alert: Ice Tomorrow and Snow for Christmas

Before the cold returns, we'll have our Christmas Eve disturbance to deal with. Snow squalls with quick bursts of heavier snow are possible.

A weak trough cutting across the Great Lakes region will bring widespread snow to the area Christmas Eve into early Christmas day.

In its outlook, the weather service said light to moderate snow will spread east into Central Illinois late tonight and continue through Sunday, before diminishing or ending during late Sunday afternoon. "It makes it all worthwhile".

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory from 6 p.m. Sunday through 1 p.m. Monday because freezing rain will make risky road conditions. Cold air in place and moisture running over top of that air mass is a recipe for snow in the Pacific Northwest.

"A lot of this stuff will break up as it moves over the mountains, so even where any snow does manage to reach the ground, odds are not high it will stick". The temperature was expected to fall to around 12 degrees by 5 p.m., pushing the "coldest air of the season" into the area with wind chills dropping to 5 degrees below zero and wind gusts as high as 30 miles per hour. Our wind will be out of the north at around 10-15mph, so we will have a chilly breeze all day long.




The snow Monday likely brings a plowable storm to much of the area with even Boston seeing accumulating snow.

Whatever snow we get should stick around on the grass and wherever with a high Sunday of 22 and a high on Christmas Day of 18.

Two rounds of winter weather down, one to go for Christmas Day. Be sure to allow some extra time for any evening/overnight travel.

The best chance in our area will be along the I-94 and south. Highs will be in the low to mid 50s sunny skies. If we get enough sun we could get into the lower 40s; if the clouds hold tough we may stay in the upper 30s.
