Wet, Not White, Christmas Expected in N. Texas

Some areas may see a dusting of snow

It looks like it will be a wet, not a white, Christmas this year.

NBC 5 Meteorologist Remeisha Shade said a few snowflakes may mix with rain on Christmas Eve, but little to no accumulation is expected.

Highs Saturday will be in the low to middle 40s in the afternoon. 

Saturday night, just as Santa is to be headed toward North Texas, light snow may mix with more rain across the Metroplex and areas west, according to Shade.  But still, no accumulation is expected in the Metroplex.

However, a dusting up to about an inch of snow is possible overnight into Christmas morning near Mineral Wells, Bowie and Graham," Shade said. "Accumulation will mainly be on grassy surfaces, although I can't rule out a few slick spots on elevated roads overnight west, northwest of the Metroplex."

Shade said all precipitation will switch back to rain by Sunday afternoon when high temperatures climb near 50.
