More snow is on its way to dozens of states as we continue through this Christmas weekend. Some of this may be heavy and snarl travel, so here is the latest timing and expectations.
Snow and rain will come to an end along the East coast by midnight Sunday morning. The Southeast states will see scattered rain showers into Sunday morning. Meanwhile, snow will spread from Wyoming and Colorado into Nebraska, parts of Missouri, Iowa, and Illinois by daybreak Sunday.
Christmas Eve Sunday
Snow will spread from parts of Missouri and Iowa into Illinois, Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, and Pennsylvania through the day. The Pacific Northwest will get a rain/snow mix, possibly snowing all the way down to 500 feet elevation Sunday night. The Southeast will still stay cloudier with a chance of isolated rain showers.
Christmas Day Monday
It will be snowy for much of New England and parts of the Northeast by daybreak. Watch for slick travel and gusty winds blowing the snow around too. The Great Lakes will be cold, windy, along with scattered lake-effect snow showers. The West will be snowy as snow showers will be likely from Washington to Colorado. Watch your road conditions across the passes which tend to receive more snow.
During the next couple of days, snowiest places will be in the central and northern United States. That’s also where it will be coldest. If you are traveling through snowy areas with winter alerts, allow extra time or consider traveling another day that clears up. Stay safe!
