CLEVELAND — If you're dreaming of a White Christmas, most of us will wake up from that dream on Tuesday without any snow in sight. Lake effect snow today gives parts of Northeast Ohio a slight chance at a White Christmas.

A White Christmas is defined as an inch of snow on the ground on Christmas morning. Mild temperatures and minimal snowfall hurts the chances that for most of Northeast Ohio but a few of you still have a chance.

The area with the most snow on the ground is the area circled below in the snow belt and the area with the best chance to see a White Christmas. Some light accumulation from Lake effect snow will add to it early this afternoon.

Snow chances will remain to our south Christmas day outside of a few flurries.

Cleveland has had a White Christmas three of the last 6 years and 14 of the last 30 years.
