White Christmas? Not Quite, But Travelers Should Keep An Eye On Weather

Northwest Iowa — A white Christmas? No, not exactly. But there could be precipitation on Christmas Eve, and the low is supposed to be 26 degrees. Plus, the word “snow” is even in the forecast for Christmas Day, but it’s along with the word “rain.”

All eyes are on the weather as we head into the Christmas holiday weekend. Forecasters say a major storm system currently over the southwestern part of the US will head our way this weekend. They say temperatures at the onset will be warm enough for just rain to fall beginning Saturday night and continuing through Sunday and Sunday night. The rain will continue into Christmas Day, however, forecasters say we could see at least some of that to change over to snow, which will continue into Tuesday, Tuesday night, and maybe even Wednesday.

They add that accumulating snowfall could be possible, but they say it’s still too early to try to pinpoint amounts.

Holiday travelers should be aware of that and stay tuned for later forecasts.
