Light Snow Possible This Afternoon

Could it possibly be a Christmas Miracle? Maybe so, but probably not! An upper level disturbance will move through the region today prompting a few rain and snow showers this afternoon and evening. The latest HRRR model suggests a quick burst of snow may be possible around 4 to 5 PM.

However, surface temperatures are expected to be above freezing, thus most of the snow should melt away. If a heavy burst of snow can come down, some minor accumulations may be possible. The National Weather Service in Paducah put the graphic together below.

Temperatures drop below freezing by 6 PM this evening so anything left over may still be there Christmas morning, but this is certainly a stretch due to gusty winds. The better chance of accumulating snow is to the north of the region. Overnight lows drop to around 23°.

That wraps up this short Christmas Eve forecast. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed day!
