White Christmas eve in the forecast

Freezing rain can make getting anywhere on the roads treacherous

A dry start to Christmas Eve Day will be followed by a quick hitting storm system that will bring a white Christmas to the region.

Today will be a soggy one as last minute shoppers rush out to get those pre-Christmas deals.

A mix of rain and snow becoming all snow giving 1-3 inches for most, a coating to 1 inch south. Winds will remain breezy out of the west Christmas day, keeping wind chills in the single digits.

In the mountains, snow showers will occasionally cause travel problems through the passes. "It makes it all worthwhile".

We've got a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY through Monday morning for most areas in the Central and South Puget Sound. Once the cold air moves in, lake effect snow develops for Northern Oneida into the Tug Hill. Temperatures are expected to fall below freezing into the evening hours. To further keep toasty on Christmas Day, do not forget to drink warm beverages and limit any time outdoors, the weather service said. Expect total snow amounts of 2 to 4 inches with a high of 28 degrees and a low of 17.

Israeli official: Saudi Arabia denies chess visas
The Israel Chess Federation accused Saudi Arabia of misleading FIDE to enable hosting the tournament, which begins on Tuesday. FIDE had said in November it was undertaking a "huge effort" to ensure all players were granted visas.

As we head into Christmas Eve, we'll track out a light snow maker for the Ohio Valley.

Cold front moves in by the late afternoon into the early evening with rain changes back to snow. Wind advisories are up for the entire area to highlight those strong wind gusts, most likely to occur the first half of Christmas Day through early afternoon.

Northern Westchester and Rockland counties in NY and parts of northwest New Jersey, including Passaic, Sussex and Warren counties are also likely to get snow.

No matter the weather, I hope everyone enjoys a lovely Christmas and holiday season! Be sure to allow some extra time for any evening/overnight travel.

Motorists should be prepared for slick roads and reduced visibility at times, with high traffic volume ahead of Christmas Day on Monday.
