Chances for white Christmas are slim

ILLINOIS (RFD) — Friday marks the first official day of winter and it comes just four days before Christmas. Chances for a white Christmas in Illinois, defined as an inch or more of snow, are not too promising says meteorologist Eric Schmidt with EJS Weather in Newton, IL.

Schmidt anticipates more of an El Nino pattern developing for the coming winter months—which means less snowfall and milder temps.
