While a rain and snow mix is possible Monday night from a separate, smaller system, the biggest danger to the traveling public overnight into Tuesday morning will be the potential for dense fog.

Much colder weather will dominate on Thursday and Friday.

Heavy snow and rainstorms moving through much of the United States are predicted to create risky road conditions for millions of travelers heading out after Christmas. Marie to North Bay may also experience a period of freezing rain or rain Thursday night and through Friday before a cold front sweeps eastward across the regions giving more snow and blowing snow. Blowing and drifting snow could make for extremely hard travel conditions this evening, the Weather Service reported.

Gusts near 60 miles per hour have occurred in western Kansas and central Nebraska during Thursday morning.

Area residents heading out Thursday morning should be prepared to deal with slick roads, strong winds and in some places a blast of snow as part of a weather system that may even be packing some thunder.

Dreaming of a white Christmas? Be careful what you wish for
A band of cloud and outbreaks of rain will persist across Ireland, Devon and Cornwall for much of the day, mildest here too. On Christmas Day expect scattered snow showers with some rain possibly mixing in at times; expect highs in the mid 30s.

Areas farther east were expected to get less of the white stuff, with 1-3 inches predicted. "Overnight Thursday, snow will start over parts of Northern New England, ending by Friday evening", according to the short-range forecast from the Weather Prediction Center. Overnight lows remained more than 20 below as 2017 drew to a close with daytime highs not rising above zero (think 5-8 degrees below zero in fact) and 7 inches of snow on the ground.

Once the fog lifts, Christmas will be the best day for traveling this week.

It will be a colder day with highs reaching about 30 degrees with a nasty north wind of 15-30 miles per hour.

Today's storm is expected to wrap up in the late afternoon or early evening, Mangels said.
