White Christmas? Snow forecast for parts of Scotland

Christmas Day will be cold and windy with snow showers, with more significant lake effect snow arriving in northern NY into the middle of the week. Meanwhile, nightly low wills be in the single digits south of Lake Ontario, the Weather Service said.

The National Weather Service's forecast indicates the next chance of snow will come New Year's Eve weekend.

Christmas Day will be partly sunny with a high near 35 and a low of 18. Motorists were advised to use caution. "Winds could pick up the snow and re-cover those surfaces and make them slippery again". Highs will only be in the teens in most areas.

Southeast Nicholas County, including the City of Richwood, is expected to receive two and five inches with its advisory expiring 9 a.m. Christmas morning.

Westchester, Dutchess and Orange counties, meanwhile, will likely see a dusting, while Sullivan County could get three to six inches of snow. A heavy blanket of snow has befallen much of the Buckeye State. With temperatures well below freezing and trending lower there should be no problem meeting the one-inch Christmas Day snow cover requirement for a white Christmas.

A number of reported snowfall totals came in early on Christmas morning - Wallkill had 4.3 inches of 6:12 a.m.; Red Hook had 4 inches as of 7 a.m.; Kingston had 4 inches as of 7 a.m.; and Poughkeepsie had 2 inches as of 7 a.m. But by nightfall, warm temperatures had melted most of the white stuff away.
