At this time, the bulk of the showers will move in and will all transition over to snow.

"Breezier than recent days, in freshening southwesterly winds, becoming strong and gusty in the west and north. Highs of 10 to 12 C". On Rendezvous Mountain, atop the Aerial Tram at Jackson Hole Mountain Resort, 5 to 9 inches of snow were possible Friday afternoon, with wind gusts as high as 30 miles per hour. It will be on the windy side, with winds out of the NW 10-15, with gusts up to 30 miles per hour. There's a 60 percent chance of precipitation, with new snow accumulation of around an inch possible. Highs will only be in the low 20s. South wind around 7 miles per hour will become northeast after midnight.

In Wyoming and southern Erie counties a winter storm watch will be in effect from Sunday afternoon through Tuesday evening. The low will be around 2, with wind chill values as low as minus 20 and west wind 17 to 26 miles per hour.

Christmas Eve Day will start off dry with a blend of sunshine and clouds. Breezy, with a west wind 18 to 21 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 40 miles per hour. With clearing skies expected late tonight, re-freezing of surfaces and black ice will cause hazardous road conditions, especially across inland areas where temps just made it above freezing with plenty of standing water. Overnight lows will bottom out in the low-mid 20's making for a cold one.

THURSDAY: Mostly sunny, bitterly cold.

A Met Eireann forecaster said: "Continuing mostly cloudy and misty today, with some patchy drizzle and some hill and coastal fog". The shoreline will be experiencing changeover to rain or a rain/snow mix, so accumulations will be minimal.
