For the skywatchers out there, this from Accuweather on forecast for snow on Christmas evening:
AccuWeather reports all the ingredients are coming together for a major snowstorm to unfold Christmas Day and spread from the southern Plains to the eastern Great Lakes and Northeast.
Far more potent than the snow event headed to the Northeast Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, this storm will unload windswept and burying snow on its northwestern flank.
While snow will push through the Rockies—including Denver—Christmas Eve, the worst of the snowstorm will take shape Christmas Day across the southern Plains.
Snow will intensify Tuesday as it spreads from the panhandles of Oklahoma and Texas to the Red River and western Arkansas. The major snowstorm will then press northeastward Tuesday night into Thursday, passing from Arkansas into the Ohio Valley, then the eastern Great Lakes and Northeast.
Some snow could even press as far south as the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex Tuesday and northern Louisiana Tuesday night.
Other weather services have strengthened their predictions of snow showers in the evening Christmas day, with a high during the day of 38 with rain.
