(WJET/WFXP/YourErie.com) — A white Christmas will not just be a dream this year.

Here’s some preliminary information on the strong storm that will affect our area over the weekend.

It a “Trifecta” — wind, cold & snow. It’s too early to tell amounts, but it will be plowable snow and roads will get snow covered and slippery starting Friday.


There will be a few flurries around the area including in Edinboro Monday night.

But these will be dissipating overnight leading to a dry Tuesday and the first day of winter on Wednesday. After that, things start to go downhill on Thursday.
