Christmas weather conditions from the Weather Network

The Weather Network meteorologists foresee a green Christmas for many Canadians this year due to the overall milder than normal temperatures.

Coastal B.C. residents can expect a "typically green" Christmas, as well as some areas near the U.S. border. The northern interior and higher elevations in the south could see a white one.

Though large sections of Southern Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces have seen little snowfall this month, some areas could see a light dusting of snow before Christmas, according to the Network’s newly-released Ho! Ho! Snow Report.

Eastern Canada could see flakes as early as next week, thanks to a potential storm brewing in the U.S. The Prairies are expected to see a thin layer of snow on the ground for Christmas.

With snow currently carpeting the ground and cold temperatures lingering through the next week, Canada's North is "guaranteed" a white Christmas.

So, what's in store for your area this Christmas?

 The Weather Network meteorologists Chris Scott, Martin Belanger, Patrick Cool and Gina Ressler will be available  by phone from Wednesday, December 21, to Friday December 23, for insight about what kind of weather you can expect this Christmas and to discuss local/national weather conditions.

This is especially handy for those travelling during the holiday season. Local forecasts, airport forecasts, highway conditions and The Weather Network’s Flight Tracker can all be found online.
