White Christmas chance looks very low for the Carolinas

  • On average there is a 10 percent chance North Texas will have a white Christmas any given year according to historic weather records

Looking for a surefire way to get a white Christmas? Really? Have you no Christmas spirit?

Some forecast models are predicting a "wintery mix" storm of snow and sleet in the Hill Country on December 23, which could translate into a white Christmas for San Antonio and Austin if the weather holds out.

So the bottom line is I DO see the potential for some snow on Christmas Eve, but it's unlikely to cause major travel problems or be a big snow-man builder. The Euro and GEM solutions are showing cold and snow late Christmas Eve.

It will only be classed as a White Christmas in the city if snowflakes are spotted at Dundee Airport on Monday. "The National Weather Service defines it as 1" or more snow on the ground Christmas morning.

Still, it is sort of surprising, isn't it?

This isn't hail sleet or snow. It's shattered glass at the Rowlett home of Lindsay Diaz after the December 2015 tornado

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know that this year hasn't been the greatest when it comes to snowfall - we've had less than 5 inches so far this year when we should be well into the two-digit mark by this point.

Numerous days leading up to the holiday will be unseasonably warm, with cold air pushing our way by Christmas. "That's a pretty high number for 10 days out". "Combine the cold with the 6.1" of snow which fell in Boston back on the 9th-10th (the most snow to fall in any December storm since 2013) and it seemed we were nearly a lock for a snow-covered ride for Santa right into Boston. Our medium range models continue to "flip-flop" with snow vs.no snow for the upcoming holiday weekend.

The problem is, the low-level air mass will be very dry by the time the third one shows up, leaving me to believe snow amounts, if any, would be an inch or less.

If it's any consolation, showers won't make for the worst travel conditions, but just plan to navigate some wet roads if your destinations are in and around the southeast. Sunday (Christmas Eve), may start out with lows close to zero, while the afternoon highs barely reach the upper 20's or low 30's. But much of central and south MS experienced between 1 and 6 inches of snow on December 8.

With this front, there will be rain from New Orleans to NY.
