Bah humbug: Snow, sleet, freezing rain to make for slick holiday travel

2 Chances for Snow Over the Holiday Weekend

And, after temperatures warm slightly Saturday and Sunday, when the sun is expected to re-appear briefly, more snow is expected throughout the state on Christmas Day. Totals ramp up to 3 to 6 inches for parts of north central MA, southern New Hampshire, much of ME, and much of Vermont. The precipitation may end as a period of sleet and freezing rain after midnight over southernmost New Hampshire and extreme southwestern Maine.

Today's first full day of winter is expected to receive five to 10 cms of snow with a mix of freezing rain and ice pellets to follow early Saturday morning.

Winter storm warnings are in place for York, Cumberland and southern Oxford counties, where cold surface temperatures could freeze rain on Saturday as it falls from warmer temperatures higher up.

Snow will fall steadily overnight Friday and into Saturday morning, amounting to around 4 inches by daybreak Saturday, according to Mignone.

The messy weather comes as the American Automobile Association is predicting 107.3 million Americans will travel by planes, trains, automobiles and other modes of transportation between Saturday and January 1.

Some additional wet snow is possible on the backside of this final round of Winter Storm Dylan from the Ohio Valley into northwest Pennsylvania, western and central NY.

New England will be hit the hardest.

Lighter accumulations are expected in other parts of the interior Northeast and eastern Great Lakes as far west as northern Ohio.

Two inches of snow fell in 90 minutes late Wednesday night in Pocatello, Idaho.

"It's going to be very tough driving", said James Brown, a meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Gray, Maine.

MA has not seen snow on Christmas since 2009.
