Snow dusts Western Washington for rare white Christmas

First Alert: Ice Tomorrow and Snow for Christmas

Overnight temperatures in the low 40s, cooling into the low 30s.

The wind will be relatively light from the north today, around 10 to 15 miles per hour, bringing lower humidity, so we should dry out numerous roads. If you are traveling late tonight, you shouldn't run into any travel problems until between 2 a.m. and 3 a.m. when the heavy snow and rain spreads all across southern New England.

As a surface low moves east of the area Sunday afternoon and evening, snow will fill in across the rest of the region.

Wind gusts near 30MPH for Christmas Day.

The Department of Sanitation issued a snow alert for the city starting at 10 p.m. Sunday, even though Storm Team 4 doesn't expect any snow to stick amid the slush and rain.

Snow will bring slick travel conditions to much of the area beginning Christmas Eve. Temperatures through the extended period will be cold with highs in the upper 20's and low 30's.

However, it will not drop in time for a strong possibility of snow on Christmas Day, with average temperatures expected to be around 7 degrees on Monday. The forecast calls for light snow to start late Saturday night and into Sunday with the highest snowfall of 3 to 4 inches in northeast Missouri and west-central IL. Jacksonville, Florida reached 5 degrees below zero.

First Alert: Ice Tomorrow and Snow for Christmas

To the south, near Springfield and Decatur, the weather service is calling for two to three inches of snow.

There's a possibility that before this system departs, it may thump Boston with some colder air and a little bit of snow accumulation.

There will be several hours of steady snowfall in the northern half of the state.

A general 3-to-6-inch snowfall is expected, but the stakes are high if we get more than one thunderstorm we may have amounts past six inches.

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.

The cold will be king after Christmas, possibly right through the New Year.
