Some parts of our area could see a 'White Christmas'

Posted: Updated:
GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Say goodbye to the record warmth and the rain.

A cold high-pressure system is moving in behind the front that brought us the heavy rain Sunday into earlier today. This high pressure will keep us sunny, dry and cold over the next several days.  

In the mountains, there will be a few more clouds and a few light snow showers/flurries Tuesday mainly along the North Carolina/Tennessee border. 

Tuesday will be blustery in Western North Carolina with northwinds 10 to 15 mph and gusts to 35 mph.  

The forecast:

Christmas Eve: Sunny and much colder in the Upstate with highs only in the upper 40s. The mountains will be variably cloudy with a slight chance of a few sprinkles or light snow showers right along the Tennessee border with North Carolina. Blustery winds from the North at 15 to 20 mph gusting to 35 mph will make the highs in the middle 30s feel even colder.

Christmas Day: Sunny and cold with morning lows in the lower to middle 20s in the Upstate and in the middle 10s in the mountains. Afternoon highs will warm only into the middle 40s in the Upstate and near 40 in the mountains.

Thursday: A mixture of clouds and sunshine and slightly milder morning lows will range from the middle 20s in the Upstate to the lower 20s in the mountains. Afternoon highs will be near 50 in the Upstate and in the middle 40s in the mountains.
