Winter Weather Advisory in effect for Christmas Eve, be careful traveling
27 December 2017, 12:53 | Sherry Padilla
What will weather be like this Christmas?
The Chicago area could see dangerously low wind chills on Christmas Day, increasing the risk of frostbite and hypothermia if precautions are not taken.
Thinking is still the same from the last few days forecast.
Winds will increase late in the afternoon, causing blowing and drifting snow. If we get enough sun we could get into the lower 40s; if the clouds hold tough we may stay in the upper 30s.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for all but the northern most portions of the Chicago area Sunday (Purple-shaded area on the highlighted map above). Steady snow continues across all of central MA, north to VT, NH, & ME. Most of the snow falls while we're asleep, and it's sunny day once lingering morning clouds clear out.
In addition, a new storm system is moving into the Pacific Northwest with up to 2 inches of snow expected in Seattle and a mix of ice and snow in Portland, Oregon. We're not expecting more than an inch in the Bluegrass.
The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory from 6 p.m. Sunday through 1 p.m. Monday because freezing rain will make risky road conditions. On Long Island, no snow is expected to accumulate. After this time, snow showers will be slowing and will come to an end before we wake up to see what Santa brought us. Wind advisories are up for the entire area to highlight those strong wind gusts, most likely to occur the first half of Christmas Day through early afternoon.
Temperatures start around 30 and reach the 40-degree mark for Christmas Eve.
Later Christmas night - Prepare for developing slick spots as temperatures fall below 32. NWS is putting the chance of overnight snow at 70 percent from Chambersburg to Lebanon.
