White Christmas chance looks very low for the Carolinas

This isn't hail sleet or snow. It's shattered glass at the Rowlett home of Lindsay Diaz after the December 2015 tornado

That's the coldest afternoon high temperature since early January!

The latest weather predictions show that temperatures are set to rise all week, and despite suggestions by some forecasters that the jet stream could shift south and cause another burst of Arctic weather, bookmakers appear to be banking on a non-white Christmas.

SATURDAY: VERY COLD! Windy with snow throughout the day. In fact, temperatures could struggle to get out of the teens on Christmas Day as a Polar Airmass moves in to the Central Plains and the Midwest. Sunday, we may be able to squeak out a dry day with sun and clouds for Christmas Eve. But it predicts northern areas such as Batesville and Oxford could have those "rain/snow showers" on Christmas Eve and switch to a "wintry mix" on Christmas Day.

And don't forget, if you have a bet on a white Christmas Day, you only need a single flake to fall.

Stronger winds are then due to move south, hitting the United Kingdom from Boxing Day to New Year's Day with two further low pressure zones on their way.

Trump says he's not planning to fire Robert Mueller
While there's nothing yet to indicate whether there was anything explosive in those emails, the administration is clearly spooked. Both Mueller's team and Loewentritt pushed back on Langhofer's accusations. "Justice by any means isn't justice".

There are some snow chances this weekend, too, with that second push of cold air. An area of high pressure over eastern Canada will be responsible for the cool and dry forecast through midweek, and that high may try to hang on through the first part of Friday as well. As of now rain develops Friday night and continues into Saturday, that's when temperatures could go well into the 50s, compliments of a strong southwesterly flow.

Are you "dreaming of a white Christmas"? Rain should end as snow in the higher elevations from West Virginia to Maine.

Weather forecasts are showing increasingly unsettled conditions all over the United Kingdom during the Christmas period.

AccuWeather forecasts disruptive travel for the holiday period December 21-26 from the Rockies to the northeast. It now shows cold air approaching the area and locking into the region. The more likely scenario would be for another rain event or perhaps a widespread ice storm.
