"Am I going to have a White Christmas?" That is the question I am most asked this time of year.
As is usually the case, it just depends on where you live. If you live in Colorado, Oklahoma, Texas or Kansas you could definitely have a "WhiteChristmas". Blizzard-like conditions are expected later today.
Meanwhile, we're waiting to see if any snow will introduce itself in the forecasts for the Midwest.
This time of year there are "typical" storm tracks that will favor snow accumulation.
This means we're looking for low pressure systems to move from Dallas to the east/northeast.
Later this week models are now hinting at the possibility for a few snow flurries or snow showers to be flying through the skies of the Midwest.
Models are suggesting that moisture will ride far enough north that some of it could fall as snow in east/southeast Missouri, Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky. Right now, amounts look minimal. Perhaps just flurries to a dusting in most locations. Although, a few spots, like Indianapolis, could see a half inch of snow. A lot of the fine details have yet to be shown.
That being said, the chances for a "White Christmas" seems relatively small for all of the areas described above. A "White Christmas" is defined as having 1 inch of snow measured on Christmas day. I don't think we'll see that much.
A lot will likely change in the forecast between now and the weekend so stay tuned to the forecast. Also, remember to follow me on Twitter (@johndissauer) for more frequent updates.
