There's nothing like waking up to a fresh blanket of snow on Christmas morning. 

The ground sparkles and the quiet air creates a serene setting before the kids tear into their presents.

Unfortunately for Northeast Ohioans, the chances of seeing a white Christmas in 2019 are slim to none.

As we look ahead to next week's forecast, we're expecting temperatures to rise, meaning ⁠— dare we say it ⁠—  the days could be a bit warm for this time of year. They'll certainly be too warm for snow.

As of Thursday morning, we're predicting a high of 48 degrees on Christmas Day. It'll be perfect weather if you want to take a Christmas hike, but leave the sleds at home.
