Christmas Eve Thoughts & Possible Snowflakes Tonight

Good morning,

On this Christmas Eve there is a disturbance moving towards Kansas City.  There is a 60% chance of rain this evening as Santa begins his trip from the North Pole.  It will be snowing around 2,000 feet above the surface tonight, but the temperatures near the ground will be closer to 38 to 41 degrees. This likely means it will be too warm for snow tonight.  It will still be close and I am saying there is a chance of snowflakes mixing in early on Christmas morning.  A dusting is even a possibility, especially around 75 miles northeast of KC.

After this lead disturbance moves by, a wetter storm will be approaching.   Here is the rainfall forecast from the GFS model last night:



Kansas City Weather Time-line:

  • Today:  Mostly sunny early this morning, then increasing clouds with rain developing after sunset.  High:  Near 50°
  • Tonight:  Rain is likely for a couple of hours with a few snowflakes possibly mixing in around midnight.  Low:  35°
  • Christmas Day:  Mostly sunny with a few clouds.  High:  48°
  • Wednesday-Thursday:  A 100% chance of rain with temperatures in the 40s warming into the 50s.  0.40″ to 2.40″ possible

We will be tracking Santa tonight!


Have a great day and thank you for sharing in this weather experience.  Merry Christmas Eve!  Go to the Weather2020 blog to join in the conversation.  We have been moderating that blog.  Last night there was a long “Chiefs Hangover” and we didn’t get to the comments right away.  We will stay on top of that today.
