Tuesday: Mostly cloudy skies and a chilly morning for Christmas Day. An upper level disturbance will move across our region bringing the chance to see a mixture of rain and snow showers for the day/evening. Snowfall accumulation could be a dusting/coating of snowfall. With the snow looking to fall during the daytime, and with temperatures in the lower 40s, most of the snow that does fall will melt. Not expecting to see a lot of snowfall accumulation. Drier air will move in for the night, and leave us quiet and cold.
