Chris Johnson's Forecast | Light snow maker on the way

First Alert: Ice Tomorrow and Snow for Christmas

Temperatures will fall near freezing. Northern sections of MA could receive up to 8 inches of snow. Use extra caution while traveling as roads may become slick.

A wayward polar vortex may show up in Ontario, and we will be just south of it.

A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will primarily cause travel difficulties. While the evening will remain dry, snow will begin to move in after midnight into early Sunday morning.

We have wind advisory is in effect for gusts past 50 miles an hour possible on Cape Cod.

The National Weather Service at Lincoln said parts of Central Illinois, including McLean County, could receive three to five inches of snow on Christmas Eve.

With a chance of snow at 100 percent (in fact some light snow is falling in Paddock Lake as I write this at 8:40 a.m.), the forecast calls for 1 to 2 inches of accumulation. Snowfall totals were around 15 inches in Wilmington and temperatures plummeted to zero degrees on Christmas morning. Snow will be widespread, with a general 3"-6" of accumulation with the heaviest accumulations to the north of the Mohawk Valley. The low could be around 18 degrees.

"According to the National Weather Service, 1-3" of snow is possible throughout the southern third of the state, with higher amounts possible the closer someone is to the Iowa-Missouri border.

Eastward-moving low pressure will pass well to our south and east Sunday, but an associated upper-air disturbance will track farther north over our area triggering the accumulating snow across the Chicago area. The snow dragged New York City to a halt that year.

Police also urged motorists to use caution when approaching snow plows, which will be out clearing roadways.
