Possible Snow Christmas Day?

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? Well, you should be! The latest from the National Weather Service says there is a good chance for a winter storm on Christmas Day.
The winter storm is expected to begin Christmas afternoon as the rain will turn to snow about that time.
Snow accumulation amounts are up in the air at this time, but the National Weather Service is expecting for most of North Texas to at least see some snow.

The official forecast for Christmas Day will come out on Monday night, when forecasters can better understand where exactly the storm will go.

If the storm tracks further South than expected, most of North Texas could see significant snow accumulation Christmas afternoon/night. BUT, if the storm takes more of a Northerly turn, then North Texas may not see any wintry precipitation at all.

With this storm comes the good possibility of the precipitation freezing overnight Christmas, which will call for some possibly hazardous driving conditions Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning. Be aware of the current traffic reports before you travel, and be very careful when having to drive.

Have a safe Christmas!
