Winter weather advisory issued; 2-4 inches possible

A widespread general snow is expected to accumulate several inches Christmas Eve night followed by a potentially significant lake effect snow event from Christmas Day into Tuesday evening.

The National Weather Service in Cleveland has issued a winter weather advisory starting 4 p.m. today to 10 a.m. Christmas Day.

But, if you live in South Jersey, you likely won't see any snow and just rain, Meola said. If only a few towns get 1 inch of snow, it will be a white Christmas for those towns but not a true New Jersey white Christmas.

The changeover from rain to snow will occur quicker in Northwest Benton county, Northeast Oklahoma and Southwest Missouri, which will lead to higher accumulations of snow on grassy and elevated surfaces.

Total accumulations of up to two inches will be possible, but most should end up around an inch. Freezing rain is a big concern into Saturday.

"Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities, and use caution while driving", the advisory states.

Waking up to partly cloudy skies. It will be a little chilly with temperatures in the mid teens to upper 20s.

We'll trend drier this afternoon and evening, with temperatures jumping into the lower 30s in most areas. The advisory says wind gusts across the state could be up to 50 miles per hour.

On Saturday afternoon, the Livingston County Sheriff's Office issued a travel advisory.
