Snow Just In Time for Christmas

First Alert: Ice Tomorrow and Snow for Christmas

Billings has been treated to a white Christmas each of the past five years, and eight of the past nine.

Before the cold returns, we'll have our Christmas Eve disturbance to deal with.

After sunset, temperatures will again drop below freezing.

Very breezy Christmas Day with cold wind chills in the low-20s. The big question is: how far north with the snow move?

Temperatures are expected to reach 27 degrees by mid-morning and peak in the mid- to upper- 30s.

The eastern White Mountains and North Country will get more snow late morning into the mid to late afternoon as the exiting storm takes a last swipe with a snow laden backlash. An inch or less is expected near and south of the Interstate 70 line, the weather service said.

We may even end up with a brief burst of thunder snow, that can accumulate two inches an hour. The timing of the change will determine how much snow falls.

Still, at between 1 and 2 inches, the snowfall may not be enough to create a transportation crisis or paralyze the city, as a Christmas storm in 2009 came close to accomplishing.

Christmas dawned sunny and cold with more snow on the ground than I could ever remember seeing.

The new snow along with strong wind has raised the avalanche danger in some locations in the backcountry. Thousands were stranded at the Stapleton International Airport on Christmas night.

Accumulation will be quick across Worcester County, southern New Hampshire and northern CT.

The focus after that will be the arctic air mass that dives south. The temperature was expected to fall to around 12 degrees by 5 p.m., pushing the "coldest air of the season" into the area with wind chills dropping to 5 degrees below zero and wind gusts as high as 30 miles per hour.
