Residents around Lower Bucks County may see some flurries, but accumulating snow on Christmas Eve and Christmas will be avoided, according to forecasters.

While areas north of Lower Bucks County are expected to see some snow and a wintry mix, the forecast from the National Weather Service showed no accumulating snow south of Doylestown. However, heavy winds are expected to sweep through the area on Christmas.

The National Weather Service warned that strong west to northwest winds are expected Christmas morning and afternoon. Guests as strong as 40 to 50 mph are expected. A Strong Wind Advisory was issued for Bucks County.

Starting Tuesday, severe cold is expected to move into the area and last until the New Year.

The Philadelphia area has seen small amounts of snow over the years, but no more than an inch or two has fallen over the past few decades. A foot of snow fell on Christmas Eve 1966 and the region saw 4 inches on Christmas 1969, according to historical records that date back to 1958.
