"So, it could actually snow on Christmas Day (like it did back in 2002, 3.3"), but if there wasn't an inch or more on the ground when the daily snow depth report was taken, it doesn't count. This system will come with snow, strong winds and VERY cold air, making any drives through the mountains slow and risky.
