Forecast Last Updated at Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 5:26PM

Partial Clearing Tonight

We'll have partial clearing tonight. Temperatures remain chilly but not noteworthy. Friday, clouds increase as low pressure moves east along the Gulf Coast. I have disappointing news for snow-lovers--it's too far south to produce a significant event here. A light wintry mix will begin late Friday night and continue into Saturday, possibly ending as light rain or drizzle by evening. There's potential mischief Sunday night and Monday, then again Christmas Eve. See the Forecast Discussion for details.

Forecast Discussion

Partial clearing comes tonight. Friday starts with some sun, but clouds overtake our region in the afternoon and evening. Low pressure moves east along the Gulf Coast Friday and Saturday. With that southerly track, any hope (or dread as the case may be) of a significant wintry storm dwindles. Expect a light wintry mix (light snow, sleet, or freezing rain) beginning late Friday night and lasting into Saturday. Precipitation will end Saturday afternoon or evening as light rain or drizzle (liquid, not frozen or white, is the point). We lowered the Snowman-O-Mometer to "Dusting" in view of this light event.

Low pressure will develop just off the Southeast Coast late Sunday and move up the Atlantic Coast Monday. High pressure centered to our northeast will be wedged down the Appalachians keeping surface temperatures chilly. Clouds return quickly Sunday; then light rain is possible late Sunday afternoon, Sunday night, and into Monday. We'll have to be vigilant for pockets of freezing rain Sunday night into early Monday. We'll have more details on this potential as we get closer to the event.

Then we look west... A front moves through from the west early Wednesday. Ahead of the front, rain develops Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night. Colder air arrives behind the front Wednesday morning--the exact timing is yet to be determined. Rain showers will change to snow showers Wednesday lasting into Christmas Eve for Santa's ride. As long as you have low standards for classifying a Christmas as "White", it is attainable especially on the west side of the Appalachians.

Christmas Day looks cold and blustery with decreasing clouds with milder temperatures quickly returning next Friday and Saturday. There's greater potential for significant winter weather as we get closer to New Year's Eve and Day.
