I am putting this post together late on Christmas Eve for those who can’t sleep because of the noisy wind, wrapping gifts, or building something for your kids. I want to make this brief, but provide you with the latest info and resources.
The front is moving through a few hours faster, and I still have high confidence that most of us will see snow in some variety on Christmas Day
Main Weather Points:
- The front appears to be moving through faster than models suggested. This is why I kept playing up ‘around midnight’. There seems to be consistency in the slow bias with modeling. We saw that with the snow last week.
- Heavy rain has prompted many flood warnings. There have been a few severe warning, but the actual front may contain the strongest winds.
- Snow! Western Maryland has it, and there will be a mix or change over briefly into central Maryland before the precip stops.
- Christmas Day: The models have finally caught up to the Vort Max I was showing you for days. There is a solid depiction of snow squalls that could bring a coating to 1 inch in spots. Yes, it will be cold enough for stickage.

This is a very busy map, and I wanted to log it here for reference later.

Christmas Day Snow
I do not have a snow map, but snow showers, even heavier squalls will be possible at anytime of the day. They will be more pronounced in the afternoon and evening.
It it possible to get a quick coating to 1 inch. It will be cold enough for stickage.
