White Christmas? Snow forecast for parts of Scotland

Possible snow amounts Possible snow amounts

High pressure will be over the area on Monday through Wednesday.

In 2016, Shimla experienced snowfall on Christmas, nearly after a gap of nearly 24 years.

A White Christmas has hit Olympia Sunday afternoon and there's hope for Tacoma.

A wind advisory is in effect from 9 a.m.to 6 p.m. Monday, with possible impacts including "difficult travel conditions" and "some downed trees, tree limbs and power lines" that could cause scattered power outages. Motorists were advised to use caution.

The National Weather Service's forecast indicates the next chance of snow will come New Year's Eve weekend.

Total snow accumulations of 3 to 5 inches are expected in Cortland County.

Days of cold are expected to follow Christmas, with temperatures expected to be in the 20s on Tuesday and Wednesday and the high teens on Thursday and Friday.

Saudi thwart Houthi missile attack on Riyadh; no casualties reported
The U.N. said at least 136 non-combatants have been killed in war-torn Yemen by Saudi-led coalition airstrikes since December 8. Houthi forces shot a ballistic missile on November 4 at the Riyadh airport that was also knocked down by Saudi air defenses.


The Met Office has now broadened its definition to extend to other parts of the country, although the snow still has to be recorded by a professional.

Periods of heavy snow and strong winds will make travel very hard to almost impossible at times from Christmas morning into Tuesday.

NWS advises to be prepared for reduced visibilities at times.

A winter weather advisory is also in effect until 4 p.m.

On Christmas Day, snow is likely, and the day will be cloudy and cold, with a high near 6 and east northeast wind around 9 miles per hour. "That is near normal - it's 1.4 inches below - but it's pretty close". But by nightfall, warm temperatures had melted most of the white stuff away.

First, what exactly is a White Christmas?
