Christmas Eve forecast: light snow and cold temperatures

Christmas Eve will be very cold with some light snow

By Paul Gross - Meteorologist

DETROIT - Overnight snow has quickly moved out of metro Detroit.

Skies are clearing and Christmas Eve will be mostly sunny, but it's going to be a cold one.

Temperatures will remain in the low to mid-teens, with wind chills between zero and ten below.

It will be clear this evening, then clouds increase after midnight.

A festive light snow will move in on Christmas morning, with around an inch possible! 

Snow will end by late afternoon, before another band of light snow drops another inch on us later Christmas night and toward Thursday morning. 

It looks like we'll get our White Christmas!

By the way, last weekend's storm dumped a bunch of snow on ski resorts in northern Michigan…conditions are great up there if you plan on heading up north to ski later this week.
