Forecast Calls for White Christmas in Iceland

Forecast Calls for White Christmas in Iceland

Last year, temperatures peaked at 50 degrees on Christmas Day, and Christmas 2016 came one degree shy of a tie for record warmth, reaching 71 degrees.

One or two waves of soaking rain will slide over the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic between Friday and Monday, with some threat of ice or snow where that moisture mixes with cold air coming in from the northwest.

As of Monday evening, the possibilities for the Christmas high temperature in Richmond range from the 30s to the 70s, with a better than even chance of clouds and showers.

Over the weekend and on Christmas Day the weather should be calmer, without any significant precipitation.

We're less than a week away from Christmas but you wouldn't know it based on this recent stretch of weather.

Snow starting to fall, Winter Weather Advisories in effect through Thursday morning
The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory that's in effect from noon until 8 p.m. for most of MA and Rhode Island. Friday: Mostly cloudy with a few flurries through the morning; partly sunny, breezy and cold in the afternoon.

Google Assistant for Android 5.0 Lollipop Smartphones and Android Tablets Coming Soon

Senior UN Official in North Korea for Talks
The UN Under Secretary-General for Political Affairs met North Korea's Foreign Minister in Pyongyang on Thursday. North Korea invited Feltman for a "policy dialogue" when Ri was in NY in September for the U.N.

And don't forget, if you have a bet on a white Christmas Day, you only need a single flake to fall. Uncertainty is still high, so we can still easily be sitting around in short sleeves and shorts on Christmas Day. We jump well into the 40's on Tuesday, stay dry through Friday and then comes the nail in the coffin...

But the European model says that won't happen, predicting all rain because of the unseasonably warm temperatures and the timing of the cold front.

The lack of rain and snow across the region can be largely attributed to a dry arctic airmass that settled in to the region during the second week of the month.

Weather forecasts are showing increasingly unsettled conditions all over the United Kingdom during the Christmas period.

Keep updated to the forecast this week, especially those who are expecting to travel. The more likely scenario would be for another rain event or perhaps a widespread ice storm. A stronger cold front will approach from the west by the weekend, with warm southerly winds in advance of it responsible for delivering our next surge of milder air. I would think that most folks like the idea of waking up Christmas morning to a white blanket of mood-setting snow.
