In you’re holding out for White Christmas in our little part of America and the world, give up.  Christmas Day is forecast to have highs in the 40s in Floyd County and perhaps even higher in lower elevations.

We have a wet Christmas Eve but the rain is expected to ease off around 3 p.m. Saturday as we head into a cloudy but dry evening with lows on Christmas morning of 46 and will stay well above freezing and only a 20 percent chance of moisture.

A little cooler Sunday night and then fog and clouds Monday with a high around 40 and a low early Tuesday morning of 46 before a chance of morning showers and highs in the mid 50s and then sunny and a high of 50 on Thursday.

New Year’s Eve is forecast to be mostly sunny with a high in the low 40s and a low right at freezing on the first day of 2017.
