ELKHART — Wanting a white Christmas?

As for predictions, it depends on which weather service you follow.

While much of Elkhart County and parts of northern Indiana got a fresh dusting late Sunday night, the National Weather Service predicts nearly dry conditions until Christmas Day on Wednesday.

AccuWeather.com, on the other hand, is predicting snow showers Monday night, Dec. 23, that could provide a light blanket of snow through Christmas.

AccuWeather is forecasting up to 1 or 2 inches of snow by sunrise Tuesday for Elkhart County.

A 40 percent chance of snow is expected Wednesday in Elkhart County, said Courtney Obergfell, a meteorologist with the weather service.

No accumulation is predicted on Wednesday.

Both groups of forecasters agree that any snow that arrives in the next day or so won’t be melting soon because high temperatures through Friday are only expected to reach the upper 20s.

Highs Tuesday will be around 20. Lows will dip into the mid teens, AccuWeather said.

Highs Wednesday are expected to be in the upper 20s and lows will fall to the mid 20s.

Windy conditions will remain Tuesday and Wednesday with gusts up to 25 mph, the weather service said.
