U.S. braces for winter storm to bring very, very white Christmas

U.S. braces for winter storm to bring very, very white Christmas

Winter Storm Dylan is turning its wintry focus on parts of the Northeast with a mix of snow and ice just in time for pre-Christmas holiday travel through Saturday.

"The European ensemble probability of 1" or more of snow from 7pm Sunday to 7pm Monday continues to go up for New England....in fact, it's now greater than 50% for most areas away from the coast. The snow will then expand eastward towards Boston and the coastline into the lunch hour.

Snow will likely begin falling Friday midday in southern and western parts of Maine. Everyone will see that mix of snow, sleet, freezing rain and rain during the day Saturday. Portland is expected to get approximately 6 inches by Friday evening, with closer to 4 inches in the Augusta area. Also on the table, a complete miss from the GFS that gives us only a few snow showers. Totals ramp up to 3 to 6 inches for parts of north central MA, southern New Hampshire, much of ME, and much of Vermont.

Two inches of snow fell in 90 minutes late Wednesday night in Pocatello, Idaho. However, a more prolonged period of freezing rain is possible from Corner Brook to the Deer Lake region and into the interior parts of Newfoundland, including Grand Falls-Windsor and Buchans, Saturday overnight into Sunday morning. Highs will be in the 30s to near 40.

Sleet and freezing rain should surge north into much of northern New England and far upstate New York Saturday. This looks to be a fast mover, so most of the impacts would be during the morning before seeing afternoon improvements. The exact track will be key in determining both what type of precipitation falls, and how much falls.

There will most likely be a lull in precipitation before more moves in.
