Windy Christmas system is tracking more to the south & looks to pivot from the Plains to Great Lakes.
Rain is likely here, tapering around Christmas.
Hopefully there is a miracle & it tracks more to the south & brings snow, but that still does not look to be the case.
It looks mild to warm right now, still.
Looks like a white Christmas Colorado to Wisconsin to northern Michigan.
You can see after Christmas through the first week of January, trend continues for mild & wet here.
I do see more in the way of cold coming in after the first week of January with increasing potential of snow & ice mid to late month. This shold be interspersed with bursts of warmth, leading to rather short duration of snow or ice on the ground.
Overall January will be warmer than normal & wetter than normal, but snow may end up closer to normal (6-12" total for the month).
