It's not looking a lot like Christmas

A white Christmas is unlikely for many of us

Sunday has been a beautiful day so far!

Our winds have died down, and temperatures remain mild, with some spots even in the 50s.

That makes for a very enjoyable December day, but the weather likely isn't helping put you in the Holiday spirit.

Some spots, especially near higher terrain, have a good amount of snow on the ground, and there's still some snow in Northeast Montana too.

The rest of us have seen our snowpack dwindle down to nearly nothing, and odds of a white Christmas are low.

Places like Great Falls, Helena, and Lewistown, where little snow to no snow is on the ground, only have about at 10% chance of seeing snow by Christmas day.

The reason that isn't zero is because we are expecting a few snow showers on Christmas eve as cooler air starts to move back into the state.

However, it looks like like most of us will see little to no accumulation.

Further hurting our odds is Monday's weather.

It's looking like another mild day, with highs in the 40s for most of us, so more melting is expected.
