Western Washington sees first "White Christmas" in years

Western Washington sees first

Parts of southern New England may have a white Christmas and possibly hard travel conditions. On the roads, motorists will have to battle light snow accumulations through Christmas Eve evening and early Christmas Day.

After sunset, temperatures will again drop below freezing.

Great Falls residents can expect a white and very cold Christmas. Heading into the evening hours, clouds will advance north, ahead of our Christmas snow storm.

By Monday afternoon, winds will blow from the west at 18 to 28 miles per hour, and temperatures will reach about 42 degrees. And yes, Virginia- believe it or not, the National Weather Service has an actual definition of a white Christmas, "1 inch of snow on the ground on Christmas morning".

This Christmas, the weather service forecast calls for a 40 percent chance of snow, with a high around 12.

Facebook will alert users each time their image is uploaded
Facebook had launched an automatic alt-text tool two years ago, which describes photos to people with vision loss. Users will need to change it to "Friends", and the Photo Review will be turned on.

The highs on Sunday are expected in the mid- to upper 30s. "Snowfall amounts will range from 3-6" in the lower valley to 4-8" along the east slopes of the Berkshires into Franklin county. Nallan also notes that it's been 15 years since the region saw snow falling overnight into Christmas.

The new snow along with strong wind has raised the avalanche danger in some locations in the backcountry.

There may be a mixture of rain, sleet and snow along the I-95 corridor. Thousands were stranded at the Stapleton International Airport on Christmas night.

There's a possibility that before this system departs, it may thump Boston with some colder air and a little bit of snow accumulation. On Sunday night, the temperature will drop to a low of 33, though it will feel closer to between 25 and 30 degrees because of winds traveling around 14 miles per hour.
