There’s just enough time for one more look at the Christmas Eve forecast. It’s a tough one because I expect different outcomes in different places!
Most everyone will see some snow, though if you’re on the shoreline east of New Haven don’t blink or you’ll miss it! In most spots the snow will be mixed with rain or sleet from time-to-time. No one is getting a lot!
The precipitation should begin sliding into the state from the south around 8′ish. Mist or sprinkles are most likely at the start.
By 10 or 11 there should be a turnover to snow moving from the southwest to northeast. The farther south or east you are the less turnover to snow you’ll see. Later, as some warm air mixes in from the south even inland areas that had seen a little accumulating snow, will go to light rain or mixed precipitation.
A few days ago I wrote about a snowy looking coverage on grassy areas that’s slushy to the touch. That’s the most likely outcome off the shore. I’m not sure the shoreline will end up with any white accumulation at all.
In any event this is a quickly moving, lightly producing, storm. Hopefully it’s pretty in photos!
Over the past few decades I’ve been with you on Christmas Eve tracking Santa. I’ll miss wearing my Santa hat and watching his sleigh fly around the world tonight. I might be the only person you know who looked forward to working Christmas Eve.
Being Jewish I always felt excluded on Christmas. No more. I’ve grown to understand and embrace the spirit of this season. Christmas was your gift to me. Thank you.
Merry Christmas to all from this guy in pajamas.
