Snow is a possibility on Christmas throughout much of the country, but not in the Southeast.

Georgians dreaming of a white Christmas will have to travel out of the region to see snow, Channel 2 Action News meteorologists said. 

The metro Atlanta area will feel temperatures in the 60s leading up to the holiday, Channel 2 meteorologist Brian Monahan said. But, despite colder air moving in on Christmas Eve, temperatures will be too high for any rain to freeze.

So while it may rain the night before, on Christmas we won’t see wintry weather. 

“With snow in the South, it’s always a race between the cold air and the moisture,” Channel 2 Chief meteorologist Glenn Burns said. “Usually, the moisture in the air moves out before the really cold air settles in.”

In the case of the snowstorm two weeks ago, the two actually met up, Burns said. 

“However, on Christmas, all the models show the moisture gone by the time the cold air moves in,” Burns said. “If you want snow, it looks like much of the country will see some, except the Southeast.”
