Enough cold air wraps around an area of low pressure to give us snow flurries and light snow showers as Santa arrives early Christmas morning, and when families wake up on Christmas Day. It will be colder with highs near 30°F.

Happy Kwanzaa on Friday! The first day of the holiday will be partly sunny and cold with morning temperatures in the teens and afternoon temperatures in the middle and upper 20s.
