Dreaming of a White Christmas?

Dreaming of a White Christmas?”

Numerous days leading up to the holiday will be unseasonably warm, with cold air pushing our way by Christmas.

Enjoy the last two days of warmth, Tuesday and Wednesday, with highs in the 50s and 60s. A cold front will drop through tonight around 7:00pm and should come in dry with a subtle wind shift, adding colder air overnight.

As of Monday evening, the possibilities for the Christmas high temperature in Richmond range from the 30s to the 70s, with a better than even chance of clouds and showers.

Heading in to the New Year, it looks like colder than normal conditions may persist through the first few weeks of January for the most part.

According to the NWS, chances are increasing for winter weather across portions of the Ohio Valley Christmas Eve through Christmas Day.

"We've been laying bets on a White Christmas from as early as September, however, the gamble has intensified in recent weeks so the bookmakers will be praying temperatures start to increase as we approach the big day".

Betting companies reporter a flurry of bets on whether the United Kingdom will have a white Christmas with Coral offering 1-2 for snow in any major city on the big day. If this is all snow, it would be at least 2.5 inches. Nonetheless, both models agree on a swing in temperatures as much cooler air enters the regions behind the front. Uncertainty is still high, so we can still easily be sitting around in short sleeves and shorts on Christmas Day. Areas along the coast will be dry and mild until Friday night.

The hazards map from the Climate Prediction Center has heavy rain on Friday and Heavy precipitation which could be snow, ice or rain just east of Louisville for Sunday and Monday. It now shows cold air approaching the area and locking into the region.

But then colder air will be trying to move in on Christmas day or the day after, Evanego said.

Keep updated to the forecast this week, especially those who are expecting to travel.
