Christmas Eve is mostly cloudy with snow showers possible. Will this lead to an inch or more of snowfall? Time will tell but for now the odds are still about 50% that there will be a white Christmas, which is having 1″ or more of snow on the ground Christmas morning. Partly cloudy and relatively mild on Christmas Day with highs in the low to mid 30s.
