White Christmas in Carson City? Wish really hard and maybe …

Nevada Appeal staff report

Carson City could see a White Christmas. But it appears Santa and every single elf will have to join forces to deliver it.

According to the National Weather Service, there is a 20 percent chance of showers Friday after 10 a.m. Rain showers, that is.

And, on Sunday, the NWS says there is another "slight" chance of rain starting in the late morning, and another "slight" chance Sunday night.

Monday looks better as the NWS has dropped the "slight," saying there is a chance of rain which turns into a chance of rain and snow after 4 p.m.

Now, the big reveal: on the one day each year when almost everybody wants snow — Christmas — the NWS forecasts (drum roll, please): a chance of rain and snow showers.

With a high near 39.
