Snow for Christmas

Santa and his reindeer will have to fly through some snow tonight, with an accumulation of less than one inch possible.
He’ll see a low around minus-18 C (one below zero F) and southwest winds five to 10 m.p.h.

After Santa heads back to the North Pole, we can expect to see a 30 percent chance of snow for Christmas, with a high near minus-14 (six) and a low around minus-29 (20 below).
Look for northwest winds around five-10 m.p.h. and wind chill values between minus-32 to minus-37 (25 and 35 below).
A 20 percent chance of snow showers is possible for Thursday, with a high near minus-17 (two) and a low around minus-23 (10 below).
The record high for today is six (43) set in 1994 while the record low is minus-37 (35 below) set in 2004. Normals are minus-nine (16) and minus-20 (four below).
Sunset today is at 4:22 p.m., with sunrise tomorrow at 8:05 a.m.
