Are you dreaming of a white Christmas? Depending on where you live, you may get some snow -- at least, after it rains first.
According to forecasters, late overnight tonight and into Christmas morning, North Texans will see rain and thunderstorms.
Don't worry about Santa -- he can still deliver presents during a storm.
Folks living south and east of DFW could see strong to severe storms, according to FOX 4 meteorologist Dan Henry.
"The primary severe weather hazard could be some hail," said Henry. "And the storms could spread from Tyler south to Houston, and east to Louisiana."
But later in the afternoon on Christmas Day, our northern and eastern counties could see between 1 to 3 inches of light snow.
Don't plan on making a snowman, however. Henry says the snow most likely won't stick. However, as one moves farther north across the Red River, more like 6 inches could fall in Oklahoma and Arkansas.
But the dusting of snow isn't the biggest change coming our way: Henry says it will be bitterly cold on Christmas night into Thursday morning --- with lows in the mid-20s.
And gusty winds will help dry out the precipitation on Wednesday, but keep the high pretty chilly -- we won't get out of the upper 30s, Henry says.
