Forecast Calls for White Christmas in Iceland

Forecast Calls for White Christmas in Iceland

In fact, temperatures could struggle to get out of the teens on Christmas Day as a Polar Airmass moves in to the Central Plains and the Midwest. Past year we had just enough to qualify.

"It is definitely going to be the coldest air of the season", said Dean Packingham, senior meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Duluth.

Could this be the year MS has a white Christmas? However, it is still too early to determine specifically what type of precipitation will occur, and how much, if any, accumulations we may see.

Christmas Day may find Virginia stuck somewhere in the middle of those two air masses, and the holiday forecast is also stuck with some uncertainty for now. And after some morning sprinkles passed through and clouds finally broke for some sunshine, temperatures took off this afternoon and shot up well into the 50s. Expect plenty of clouds Saturday and Sunday with some occasional rain, although both days are not likely to be washouts at this point.

That said, here's how things are looking now.

If you're dreaming of a white Christmas, guide your sleigh north or west.
