It's hard to believe that we only have two and a half more weeks until Christmas Day, but that's the reality we face as we head into the heart of December.

Over the last few years, we have had a relatively mild December, with temperatures in the 40's or even 50's.

2022 is a bit different, as it looks like we will have a steady and colder weather pattern for the duration of the month, if the long-range forecasts are correct. That may include more snow, which could bring a round of the white stuff this weekend across New York State.

There's a system that will move through New York State this Sunday and until early Monday, which could drop a few inches of snow in some spots.

For instance in Western New York, the domestic weather model predicts anywhere from 4-8 inches of snow could fall in the entire region by Monday morning, but the European model suggests 1-2 inches of snow.

The entire state should get in on the action. That includes the southern tier, central and some portions of upstate New York, who could see a few inches of snow as well.

We shouldn't see any huge snowstorm in the near future but just enough snow to stick and cause some slick spots while driving, so be careful on Sunday.

Hopefully, this at the very least means we can get a white Christmas. Parts of the state had a white Christmas in 2020. It remains to be seen if we get that same luck in 2022.
