'Marginal' chance for White Christmas in Windsor-Essex, says Weather Network

'Marginal' chance for White Christmas in Windsor-Essex, says Weather Network

Recent snowfall has led to punters betting big on a White Christmas this year. Does snow mean nothing to you other than shoveling and snow blowing?

Some areas may see as much as 10 to 15 cm, a special weather statement said.

Alex Apati, of Ladbrokes, said: "The weather can't seem to make its mind up but we've never seen as much betting interest for snow as we already have this year with punters continuing to dream of a White Christmas". Well, if you are one of those Christmas snow-haters, you'll be happy to know that our chances (in the Boston area) have been dwindling with time.

"We could actually have flakes in the air on Christmas Eve night, and continuing through Christmas morning, which some folks would certainly welcome", said Michael Carter, a meteorologist with The Weather Network.

The Packers also released fullback Joe Kerridge from the active roster and quarterback Jerod Evans from the practice squad. Making the Pro Bowl as a quarterback is extremely hard , given the talent across the league, particularly in the NFC.

There's a chance for snow on Christmas Eve into Christmas Day that could cause travel problems, and forecasters are also looking at a looming cold spell next week that could bring heavy lake effect snow. That's the coldest afternoon high temperature since early January!

For Mount Lemmon, the odds of a White Christmas are just 25%. We have nothing different for today, tomorrow and even Friday. The rain will extend all the way into central and parts of northern New England as well. By Christmas Day, such cold could envelop Minneapolis and Chicago.

Ottawa received 16 cm of snow Monday and Tuesday. And the warm air will be accompanied by rain.

Saturday: Snow likely, mainly before noon. Last year, temperatures peaked at 50 degrees on Christmas Day, and Christmas 2016 came one degree shy of a tie for record warmth, reaching 71 degrees. With this storm a week away, there is still a range of possibilities. On Friday we have clouds thickening up, and we can't rule out some minor spits and sprinkles giving no more than a few hundredths to a tenth over about 40% of the state. Barring a near miracle, it appears as though Boston will have its 8th straight brown Christmas.
