Most Canadians are in for a white Christmas this year.

The Weather Network's Chris Scott said this holiday season will likely see snow "anywhere east of the Rockies ... from southern Alberta right through Newfoundland."

"People have a nostalgic romantic sense of Christmas as snow on the ground and snowflakes falling," said Scott. "At the same time, when weather gets in the way of Christmas plans, travel to friends and family, that's a bit of a different story."

Scott warned a wet storm coming in from the U.S. Saturday and Sunday could cause power outages and hamper holiday travel in Ontario, Quebec, and eventually, Atlantic Canada. Some areas could see freezing rain, he said.
