Merry Christmas. I hope everyone got what they wanted under the tree because anyone hoping for a white Christmas is probably out of luck.

The National Weather Service is giving us a 20 percent chance of some snow before 10 a.m., but that hour is fast approaching with no snow yet.

At least there’s still a little snow on the ground to give things that holiday feel.

The weather service is calling for a blustery day with wind gusts up to 48 miles per hour. But conditions will be mostly sunny with a high near 42 degrees.

Winds will continue through the evening. The overnight low should be near 22 degrees.

Monday should be sunny and still a little breezy with a high near 41.

Tuesday and Wednesday could get into the low 50s.
