Maps: Here are the forecasts for snow and freezing rain arriving in Massachusetts Friday and Saturday

First Alert Forecast

And while the weather is looking like it will clear up Sunday with some sun and a high near 42 degrees, more snow is likely Christmas Eve and into Christmas morning. This was still a little above normal for this time of the year, but obviously being closer to normal combined with a stiff breeze made for a bit of a chill in the air. This will lead to an increase in the clouds, and this should also mean our temperatures don't drop off quite as much as they did Wednesday night/Thursday morning.

Friday: Cloudy, snow or mixed precipitation before changing to freezing rain or coastal rain late at night.

Sunday: 30 percent chance of snow in the pm, mostly sunny - high near 33. Periods of unsafe wind chills colder than 25 degrees below zero are expected across northwest Wisconsin late Christmas Eve (Sunday) through Christmas Day and into early Tuesday, Dec. 26.

An umbrella, however, might not be out of the equation, however, as moderately warm temperatures and mostly sunny skies on the Space Coast give way to a slight chance of rain. Even with the rain and clouds, temperatures will climb into the 50's before the stronger cold front moves through Saturday morning. Upper 20s to near 30° Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. The big question will be the timing for us here in eastern PA and western NJ. Areas to the north of Highway 29 have the best chance of seeing snow showers tonight, then snow will become more widespread tomorrow morning. Folks up in New England would get the majority of the wintry weather.

We're watching a storm in two parts moving in overnight - a system tracking from the Rockies will arrive quickly, picking up moisture from the South along the way. Across the rest of the area, expect road conditions to deteriorate throughout the day.

On the opposite side of the temperature spectrum, Christmas 1983 stands out on the cold side of things, with a high temperature of 7 and a low of minus 16.

We'll see clearing into Tuesday as the storm exits and arctic cold pushes into the region.

The bottom line on what we've got to contend with is basically nearly every type of precipitation that's possible aside from hail.
