Winter Weather Advisory in Place Overnight Tonight for Snow

First Alert: Ice Tomorrow and Snow for Christmas

Hey, Folks! Puget Sound Weather Geek here with a quick holiday forecast!

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

The bottom line is we have to contend with almost every type of precipitation this weekend.

For the most up-to-date look at the weather, check out the forecast on WTOP's Weather page. It's all about timing and the precipitation type.

New data continues to show a mixed bag of rain and snow for Christmas morning.

The Metro's Christmas Eve snowfall is a dream-come-true for winter lovers. and it's also rarer than you might think. This light event will be all rain south of 195, and mostly rain after a few early flakes along the Route 1 corridor. A developing area of low pressure is sliding northeast along the coastal plain of the eastern United States this afternoon and evening. There may be a mixture of rain, sleet and snow along the I-95 corridor. Those raindrops cool as they fall to the ground.

US Naval Blockade Would Be 'Act of War,' North Korea Warns
South Korea's military said the missile reached an altitude of 2,800 miles and flew 596 miles. Signs of increased unrest in North Korea have been noted in recent months.

By Monday afternoon, winds will blow from the west at 18 to 28 miles per hour, and temperatures will reach about 42 degrees. This stronger wind could cause ice laden branches and power lines to fall. The most likely spot for this is over New Hampshire and the northern part of MA, but it's very tough to predict the exact amount of ice that will accrete on trees and wires. The Monday storm brings snow or rain changing to snow before ending in the middle of the day.

Showers will begin to taper off later tonight, though with temperatures dropping below freezing there is the potential for a refreeze overnight.

Sunday is a reprieve from inclement weather.

The highs on Sunday are expected in the mid- to upper 30s. The ice will melt in some places.

And 6-9 inches of snow outside 495 (again, NW of Boston), Worcester, to northern MA into VT & NH (away from the coast). As is normally the case, snow chances tonight will increase the farther north you travel, and that's where the slickest travel is likely to be as well. I'll be back one more time before 2018!
