Snow possible on Christmas Day


Posted Dec. 24, 2020

If you’re dreaming of a white Christmas, well it’s possible.

According to the National weather Service, light snow for the eastern portion of Michigan is expected early Christmas morning, with snow showers then building in throughout the day.

Accumulating snow will be most likely over the eastern-third of the forecasting area.

Temperatures will also be cold, with overnight lows in the teens warming up in to the mid to upper 20s for a high.

With light winds, it will feel more like the lower teens outside.

The sunset on Thursday night was so amazing it needed to be shared.

In fact, sunsets have been particularly vivid all week. I’ve been outside at sundown snapping photos almost nightly.

Here is what the scene looked like Thursday near Sibley and Vining Roads.

Accumulating snow is forecasted for Monday into Tuesday in Metro Detroit.

The National Weather Service in Detroit says snow is expected Monday and lasts through the day Tuesday.

Forecasters say uncertainty remains in the exact track of the low which will affect snow totals.

Stay tuned for refinements in coming forecasts.

At this time a general 2 to 5 inches of snow is expected by the time the snow system is complete.

Please see the NWS weather graphic below for more information.


A note from the editor about snow/weather forecasts:

The Huron Hub, like many local news websites, posts regular snow and weather forecasts that affect the region. Our goal with these posts is to keep our readers informed.

This morning, ahead of the upcoming snow forecasted for next week, our inbox received a rather rude, anonymous message telling us that our snow forecast “for Sunday” was wrong. The reader who sent that message failed to look at the date stamp on the article that they were referencing. The reader somehow missed the dateline at the top of the article. Datelines are posted on every Huron Hub article for obvious reasons – to know whether or not the article posted is recent or out of date. The anonymous reader, who decided not to share their contact info, was referring to last weekend’s snow forecast for Sunday, Nov. 22. We received a dusting of snow that day. The article even had a NWS weather graphic inside of it with a date stamp on it.

We would have responded to this reader in a private message, but they dropped a clearly hastily made email without providing a return email address. Sounds like a keyboard warrior, to us.

Reading comprehension is paramount.

Check the dates on our articles before sending errors/corrections.
