The Optimist Club's Christmas Tree sale at 2213 N. Glebe RoadLike it or not, Arlington’s Christmas will feel more South Beach than North Pole.

The high temperature today and tomorrow is expected to hover around 70 degrees. In the meantime, cloud cover will make it hard to spot Santa tonight, and Ol’ Saint Nick might want to bring a rain jacket, with storms and flash flooding expected.

A white Christmas is fairly rare in Arlington, and this year is no exception. On any given year, Arlington has around an 11 percent historic probability of having snow on the ground on Dec. 25. Anecdotally, cool and dry seems to describe the most common Christmas Day here.

If it’s not going to be a white Christmas, would you prefer it to be warm like today, but also wet, or cool and dry, as usual?
