Dec. 24, 2014. The chances of a white Christmas are slim to none in the High Country. The National Climatic Data Center produced a map charting percentages of a white Christmas, and most of Western North Carolina is in the 5 to 10 percent range.

While Christmas Eve has been a rainy day, RaysWeather.com notes that rain showers will end this evening. In noting that Santa’s sleigh might need some wheels, RaysWeather.com forecasted: “A few snow flurries are possible late tonight and early Christmas Day. Santa will have a bumpy, unsettled ride tonight. Leave plenty of cookies and milk (especially cookies); he’ll need all the encouragement he can get.”

Christmas Day in Boone has high of 41 and a low of 29 with early flurries and clear skies thereafter. Highs on Saturday and Sunday will be in the 50’s. See www.raysweather.com for the latest forecast.
