- How's this for a white Christmas?

Temperatures hovered around zero degrees in Chicago on Tuesday. Snowfall rates up to 3 inches per hour are expected.

"The city of #Boston has only had 1"+ of snow on Christmas Day 7 times in the past 125 years". Here in the city we have only had white Christmases 5 times since weather data has been kept!

A colder regime is then forecast to set in, with the temperature staying below freezing for the rest of the month, and snow on Friday.

Wet weather is more common, we have seen 38 wet Christmas Days with the most Daily Precipitation falling in 1983 with 4.24 inches.

The National Weather Service office in Cleveland said Monday's storm brought 34in of snow, an all-time daily record for Erie.

Everyone loves a white Christmas, but for Memphis that novelty is rare.

Jackson said he didn't have enough time to test Trump's hearing, although he planned to conduct such a test in future physicals. Jackson also said he plans to up the president's dosage of a medication meant to lower his cholesterol.

However, picking up roughly the average December and January snowfall - 57.1 inches - in just over a day is something long-time residents have never seen before. For the daylight hours on Christmas Eve, conditions should be nice overall.

The most brutal cold is in the northern Plains, the upper Midwest and northern New England, where wind chills will be close to minus-30 degrees. Also, buses 6, 19 and 32 are on snow routes for the duration of the day.

Anyone out late tonight at Christmas Eve services or celebrations might find driving slow and tricky, forecasters said. The snowfall shattered the city's all-time one-day record of 20 inches, recorded on November 11, 1956. The rain and snow are expected to persist through midweek, according to the weather service's Tuesday morning update. In numerous hills around central Arkansas, up to 2 inches of snow accumulated.

Here at The Herald-Dispatch, we're a little like the U.S. Postal Service - neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom keeps us from the news. Additional snow accumulation around an inch.

It is the largest 2-day snow total in the state, beating out the 44 inches that fell in Morgantown in 1958.

Mountain areas in parts of Colorado, Montana and Wyoming received more than 1 foot of snow, which started Saturday.

After the snow ends, expect blustery conditions and clearing skies Christmas Day with a high in the mid-30s, and a good shot at melting any snow that fell.
