Your 7-Day Planning Forecast includes Christmas!.so it's a ideal time to look at Wilmington's Christmas temperautre climatology. Most of us will not make it out of the 40s for Thursday but we will only have a 10% chance of rain. By the weekend we will be grabbing for the 50s! We'll have a dry airmass in place, so no snow, sleet, or freezing rain, despite the frigid temperatures.

The early call is for seasonable chill and mostly dry Christmas Eve, then a better chance for snow and ice and rain on Christmas Day. So far the Brainerd lakes area, along with much of the state, is expecting 1-2 inches of snow. Temperatures tumble to the 20s and 30s. The chances for a white Christmas continue to rise as we edge closer to the big day.
