Not a white Christmas, but a wet Christmas

Not a white Christmas, but a wet Christmas

On Wednesday, the Minnesota State Patrol reported a total of 346 vehicle crashes caused by icy roads, including 333 vehicle spin-outs and 13 jack-knifed semi-trucks. Forecasts say that the unsettled conditions will continue and are eyeing a potent system that could track over the Great Lakes next week. Midnight highs will be in the upper 30s to lower 40s on Christmas Eve morning, but temperatures will fall into the lower to mid 20s by sunrise.

Christmas Day will remain quite cold as surface high pressure continues to build into the area.

Most of Central New York avoided major flooding and damages on Christmas morning after rains had threatened to soak the region as it rebounded from its first big winter snowstorm.

And speaking of wind, we will experience plummeting wind chills as the front rolls through.

The weather agency ended its winter weather travel advisory for Halton and Peel regions early Friday morning, but kept it in place for Toronto, Vaughan, Richmond Hill, Markham, Newmarket and Georgina.

A little less wind is expected for Christmas in turn leading to slightly cooler temperatures today. Travel conditions also remain unsafe across Minnesota.

There will be a chance of showers through 9 p.m., followed by a slight chance of snow showers between 9 p.m. and midnight. Stay tuned to FOX 17 over the next couple of days for fine tuning of where the heaviest snow will likely fall.
