This year, we're carefully tracking a storm system that will move into the eastern half of the US Sunday/Monday. Its forecast for Christmas Eve is partly sunny, a 30 percent chance of showers and a high near 60.
Whatever happens, the day after Christmas will have an appropriate chill in the air.
And don't forget, if you have a bet on a white Christmas Day, you only need a single flake to fall.
According to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, Southeast Minnesota generally runs a 70 percent to 80 percent chance of meeting that standard, with just southwestern Mower County and the area around Lake City falling down to about 65 percent.
Coral Spokesman John Hill said: "The betting suggests there will be a White Christmas somewhere in the United Kingdom this year, with the major Scottish cities the most likely to see snowfall on Christmas Day". We jump well into the 40's on Tuesday, stay dry through Friday and then comes the nail in the coffin...
Temperatures are set to rise towards the end of the week, reaching five or six degrees by Friday, said MeteoNews in a statement. Conditions later Sunday and Monday will be cooler but the question right now is how much cooler. At this writing, I would rank a snowstorm as a very low (but not impossible) chance. A slight shift to the west, by as little as 20 miles, in the track of the storm would result in the majority of the area seeing rain instead of snow.
Bottom line, our chances of a White Christmas appear to be on life support.
