Will Cleveland see a white Christmas in 2013?

CLEVELAND - Some of us in Northern Ohio could still see a White Christmas.

You heard me. Its still mathematically possible. You see, after all of the heavy rain over the weekend, temperatures will drop again. High temperatures will be in the lower 30s on Monday. And temperatures Tuesday will likely hang in the middle 20s! That's certainly cold enough...

What's more: a couple of our computer guidance forecast products suggest some scattered snow showers around on Monday and some lingering Lake Effect snows on Tuesday.

One computer forecast, shown here below suggests anywhere from 1/4 to 1/2 inch of snow during the day on Monday. On Tuesday, lake effect snow showers could contribute another inch or two to the snow belt east of Cleveland...

Yes, I know. I may be grasping at straws. After all, the warmth and wetness of the weekend could easily cause those Monday snow flakes to melt as they hit the ground... Indeed the best chance for at least a little snow on the ground for Christmas Day will be Cleveland's Eastern Suburbs, Lake, Geauga and Ashtabula Counties. Maybe, for the rest of us, just seeing the flakes fly will get you in the holiday spirit.

Either way, here's wishing you all a safe and happy holiday week. Shake a hand. Hold the door for someone. Visit a neighbor. Maybe just take a minute to marvel at the beauty of a snowflake. Peace.
