Winter Weather Advisory for Southeast NY & Northern Fairfield County

Winter Weather Advisory for Southeast NY & Northern Fairfield County

Cold conditions are expected to stick around, with temperatures remaining below freezing. Within the Snowbelt, expect 4 to 6 inches of snow with isolated higher totals across higher terrain. Icy roads could make overnight travel slippery in portions of Warren, Morris and Sussex counties.

Before the cold returns, we'll have our Christmas Eve disturbance to deal with.

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will primarily cause travel difficulties. Snow begins to arrive late Christmas eve, continuing into Christmas Day.

Late Christmas Eve through Christmas morning - Snow is likely, possibly starting as rain or a rain/snow mix along the coast.

The National Weather Service defines a "White Christmas" as at least one inch of snow on the ground at any point during December 25th. The most snowfall the Chicago area has seen on December 24 was in 1918, when more than 7 inches of snow accumulated.

Temperatures plunged into to the double digits below zero in parts of Wyoming and Montana Sunday thanks to an arctic air mass that has settled across the region.

"The normal temperatures for this time of year are in the low 40s, so this isn't really unusual weather", said National Weather Service meteorologist Melissa Di Spigna. On Sunday night, the temperature will drop to a low of 33, though it will feel closer to between 25 and 30 degrees because of winds traveling around 14 miles per hour. Our wind will be out of the north at around 10-15mph, so we will have a chilly breeze all day long.

There will be several hours of steady snowfall in the northern half of the state.

This blizzard wasn't quite a white Christmas-but East Coasters got their share of snow the day after. (Courtesy Tropical Tidbits) Christmas snow will fall this year in much of Southern New England.
