Winter to Show Up on Christmas Eve

The first day of winter was largely anticlimactic with mellow temperatures and bare ground most everywhere. While some appreciate the fall-like conditions, they will soon be at an end. National Weather Service issued a detailed report of a snow storm expected to arrive across the region on Christmas Eve. According to the report, a snow/rain mix will hit the region by noon on Saturday with a complete change to snow by Saturday night. All of eastern Utah and western Colorado will be impacted. The heaviest snow will fall on Christmas Eve as the strong cold front fully arrives. Driving will be difficult on Saturday evening through Christmas Day. Even if the storm produces less than expected, National Weather Service reports that there will be at least a trace of snow left as evidence in all the region’s valleys and up to a foot of snow in the mountains. If a white Christmas is what you hoped for, it looks like Santa is going to deliver.
