Will it snow on Christmas in West Virginia?

West Virginia Headlines

Wheeling, WV – Well we are quickly approaching the special holiday that always looks better in a shade of white.

So the question, what are the odds of a white Christmas?

The short answer: “Forget about it!”

An in-depth look at the weather has a very stagnant air pattern for the early stages of the work-week with much colder air in place.

However, things will start to change to a muddy brown by Christmas Eve.

A stalled stationary boundary will meander its way into the region Friday afternoon and provide rain showers.

It will unfortunately not be a white Christmas this year. (Unlike what we had last year).

A few showers are possible early Saturday morning and afternoon with very mild air in place for the holiday itself.

Even though the mid to upper 50s is an uncharacteristic temperature for Christmas itself, it will not be anything record breaking! The record high for Christmas day at the Wheeling Ohio County Airport is 67 degrees set back in 1932.
