It may not be a white Christmas in Rockland this year, but folks should be ready for some major rain and a few snow showers this week and weekend.
The National Weather Service is forecasting heavy rain and strong winds for the area beginning late tonight and continuing into Friday morning. Rockland could see up to an inch of rain, thunderstorms, strong wind gusts and fog.
The worst of the weather will hit during Friday's rush-hour, morning commute, according to the NWS.
Also, expect snow showers Friday night into early Saturday morning and more snowflakes on Christmas Eve night, according to the NWS. But it looks like Christmas Day is in the clear, with a high of 37 and partly sunny skies.
Keep the umbrellas and boots handy this weekend while doing that last-minute holiday shopping!
