Christmas forecast for Kilkenny predicts balmy temperatures

Christmas forecast for Kilkenny predicts balmy temperatures

"However, our gut feeling is that.1"-.5" is a better way to call this, and the northern third of the state may escape with little to no additional rain from Friday night through Saturday midday. The evening will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 22. Temperatures surge back into the 60s Friday and Saturday afternoon before cooler air starts to push in once again by Christmas Day.

Widespread snowfall amounts of 2 to 4 inches across lower elevations in this region through Friday evening is expected with amounts of over 6 inches possible in higher elevations in the Adirondacks, Berkshires, and Green and White mountains. While models aren't trending quite as cold as 24-48 hours ago, expect temperatures to be about 10-15 degrees below normal for late December.

Tuesday: A cold start is expected on Tuesday with lows in the 30s and highs in the 50s.

Sunday, there is a 30 percent chance of snow before noon.

WEDNESDAY: Mostly cloudy. A couple of showers possible. New snow accumulation of less than a half-inch is possible.

We will top out in the middle 50s later this afternoon, with clouds increasing as we head towards sun down. It will be mostly cloudy, with a high near 39.

"The Arctic front will bring some light snow to the highways so folks doing some travelling can anticipate seeing some snow today and tonight". Models are still struggling with the chances of snow for Christmas Eve night and into Christmas.

Once the rain chances arrive, they will stick in the forecast through Saturday. Overnight, dry and chilly, with lows in the upper 30s.

The storms are likely to come together fast enough to bring a heavy snowfall for much of central and northwestern New England and northeastern NY state on Christmas Day. Conditions will be partly sunny, with a high near 37.

Monday night - Mostly cloudy, with a low about 12.
