Icy Mess Slowly Improving While Significant Christmas Day Snow Looms

First Alert: Ice Tomorrow and Snow for Christmas Noon update: A little rain and drizzle here, and a little freezing drizzle there
Steve Townsend | 27 December, 2017, 06:30

Today it's the ice and rain, and Christmas it's the snow and some rain.

A brief period of quiet weather after Midnight into Christmas Eve day.

Cold front moves in by the late afternoon into the early evening with rain changes back to snow.

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. Snow will continue to fall through the overnight, slowing down near mid-night. Highs most days will be sticking in the upper 20s and lower 30s with a few mixed in flurries here and there. We again are at risk for freezing rain in metro Boston tomorrow morning.

Rawlins says the frigid air will hang around through the day, with most cities in north-central Montana staying below zero all day long. Yup, December 24th doesn't get much better than that for Seattle. The exact track of the storm is yet to be determined and therefore snow amounts as well as the rain-snow line are still very questionable.

The potential is there for more snow or rain on Christmas.

New York City's Department of Buildings warned people to secure construction sites, buildings and equipment for the high winds.

First Alert: Ice Tomorrow and Snow for Christmas
Mainly Dry Friday, Rain Saturday, Colder Christmas

You can follow my updates here and on Twitter @growingwisdom.

Flurries should begin in the Omaha area by late Saturday morning.

Although the temperatures started cold, sunshine is expected to warm Denver up to about 32 degrees on Sunday.

Sunday: Partly cloudy and seasonable.

The last time it snowed on Christmas Eve in Chicago was in 2013, when the area saw less than half an inch accumulate.

TUESDAY: Partly sunny, brisk and cold.
