The phrase for the weather forecast this week is “A Chance of Snow.” 

We saw plenty of snow this past weekend with several inches overnight Saturday into  Sunday afternoon. We may see some more this week, but not as much.

This is a busy time for everyone trying to get the last minute items for the big weekend. Christmas Eve is Friday and Christmas is Saturday. New Year’s Eve is coming fast too.

Keeping an eye on the forecast is important right now with with kids out of school, students home from college and people taking some time off to enjoy the holidays.

Here’s how the weather looks going into Christmas:
