So you’re saying there’s a chance!December 22nd, 2012 at 10:58 pm by petemangione under Tony's Pinpoint Weather Blog
I realize that this line from Dumb and Dumber is one of the most overused quotes in history, but I figured it is fitting. There is a good chance we will see some snow flakes Christmas Eve night into Christmas Day.
As for accumulations, the map below is not something you typically see for a snow forecast. Usually, we put snow ranges in different spots on the map. In this case, I am putting percentages on the map. Why am I doing this? Because we are still 48 hours away from this event, and a lot can change. Here are the 2 most likely scenarios that would limit accumulations:
1) Snow changes quickly to rain and never has a chance to accumulate.
2) The snow doesn’t fall hard enough for it to stick…and we only get accumulation on grassy surfaces.
