(PIX11 WEATHER CENTER) -- Could we possibly get a White Christmas this year?

The weekend will be relatively quiet as high pressure keeps us mostly on the dry side for Saturday and Sunday.

The one exception will be the passage of a weak disturbance Saturday night.

We may get a few flakes or sprinkles from it. Aside from that blemish, expect partly to mostly cloudy skies with highs at around 40.

The official start of winter will be Sunday night at 6:30 p.m.

Monday, a wave of low pressure passes to our south and east but we may get the fringe of it with a few showers. The best chance will be during Monday night.

Highs will be in the upper 40s. Heading into to Tuesday, a moist southerly flow develops in our region. That will allow the chance from some light rain or drizzle to develop for much of the day. Temperatures will be in the lower 50s by late in the day.

The main part of the system will unfortunately affect us on Christmas Eve.

As the low moves east, it is expected to deepening quite a bit creating a windswept heavy rain storm for us. This will be a high impact storm for us that’ll create some flooding, airport delays and maybe even some power outages.

As the storm will be coming the west, a lot of warm air be ahead of it making it a mild day with highs in the mid to upper 50s.

Behind the system, colder air will usher in by Christmas.

While most of the moisture will be done and over with by the holiday, we cannot totally rule out the chance for a few snow showers.

At this point, we don’t expect much in terms of accumulation, but that may change.
