Winter Weather Advisory issued for Weston

Christmas Day will likely see some sunshine plus bitter cold temperatures, with highs in the 20s and another chance for a few flurries across the area, including lake-effect snow in western MI.

A Winter Weather Advisory will be in place through 7 p.m. Christmas evening for snow, blowing snow, and wind chills below zero. The heaviest snow will fall through Christmas afternoon.

While the snow will have stopped by the time most people are exchanging gifts Monday morning, strong winds will be present for most of Christmas day.

There is a Lake Effect Snow Warning for Wyoming and nearby counties until 6pm on Wednesday.

The advisory was issued for northern New Jersey, as well as Westchester County, other north suburban and upstate counties, and the entire state of CT. Gusts could be as high as 30 miles per hour in the afternoon. Additional snow accumulations of 1 to 3 inches and ice accumulations of a light glaze are expected. This will lead to very cold temperatures through the middle of the week.

As if the blowing and drifting snow wasn't enough from that wind, bitterly cold wind chills will be settling in as well.

Later Monday night, an arctic air blast will move into the region and stick around through much of the week.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS... A Winter Weather Advisory for snow means periods of snow will cause primarily travel difficulties. Be sure to stay tuned with the latest with Storm Team 8.
