  • Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? It's not likely

The National Weather Service suggests checking back for a more detailed Christmas forecast seven days in advance on December 18.

"Today, even though we're expecting a little bit higher temperatures, the wind chill will still be a factor", said National Weather Service meteorologist John Murray.

In Macon County this year, there is about a 30 percent chance of waking up to a snow-covered ground on December 25, according to the weather service.

We'll get a respite from the cold this weekend into early next week. There is a low of 29 for Friday night with warmer temperatures on Saturday with a high of 51 degrees.

Warm temperatures won't last, as this circulation from the southwest will eject across the plains area on Sunday morning, setting the stage for the next chance at some precipitation on Sunday morning, according to the weather service. The high will be near 49 with a south wind of 5 to 7 miles per hour. Skies will be mostly cloudy skies with a chance of rain.

On Sunday night, temperatures will drop to the upper 20s and there will be a second chance of snow showers, Murray said.

"There could be some frozen precipitation overnight, even some freezing rain is possible", Meola said Saturday morning.

Tonight, mostly cloudy, with a low around 19.

Tuesday, partly sunny, with a high near 41. That usually means periods of high-impact winter weather counterbalanced by periods of much mild weather in and around these parts.
