Believe it or not, Christmas is just a little over two weeks away. While Seattle’s weather is a bit of a wild card, it doesn’t hurt to check out what’s in store. Here’s an updated look at the Seattle Christmas weather forecast.
With an abnormally warm fall and a relatively gentle transition into winter, Seattle’s fall was manageable. That being said, our overall winter forecast prediction of “wet and mild” has been a little more than what we’ve all bargained for.
Now it’s looking like Christmas weather will also deviate from the previously predicted wet and mild weather.
The Old Farmers Almanac has released its long-range weather forecast for the Pacific Northwest and while the most common weather theme throughout the month is rain, there is a chance of snow.
From the 21st to the 31st of December, the Almanac predicts a chance of snow.
What’s more, NOAA’s Climate normals are indeed predicting a white Christmas for the Puget Sound area. That being said, it’s a 10-25% chance of 1 or more inches of snow, but we’ll take it!
Both the Almanac and Accuweather‘s long-range forecast are predicting an average temperature in the low to mid 40’s on Christmas Day in Seattle.
So we’ll keep our fingers crossed for at least a little snow. Until then, happy holidays!
