OHIO – One of the biggest questions that is asked during the Christmas season every year, everyone seems to want the white stuff for just one special week.
It appears as though a weather pattern will be developing across the U.S. that points toward a strong chance for snow developing around the Christmas period. A long-range forecast issued by NOAA every Friday forecasts a wintry pattern developing sometime in the second half of December. Their extended forecast calls for a wintery mix the week of Christmas but has not exactly defined Christmas day yet.
According to the 10 day outlook map from NOAA, we are looking at a high chance of cooler temperatures in the Ohio region for that time period, along with an outlook of above precipitation. Of course, we all know that cold rain equals Snow, there’s a good possibility that we will see Snow at least Christmas week.
According to a recent 10-day forecast from the National weather they are calling for Snowstorms on Thursday, December 22 and Friday December 23 with a possible accumulation of 3-6 inches of snow. Temps will be cold also with dropping temps on Thursday until Christmas in the freezing range of around the low 20s.
