Christmas is less than one week away, which means that Canadians must be wondering what the weather is going to look like. Luckily, Environment Canada's Winter Forecast now includes what the weather on Christmas day will look like.

For most of Canada's major cities, the outlook from Environment Canada is definitely not indicating anything close to a white Christmas. In fact, there may not be much snow on the ground at all. 

On the west coast, Christmas day seems like it's going to be a warm and rainy one. Both Vancouver and Victoria are looking at a high of six degrees with a 60 percent chance of rain.

Moving over the Rockies into Alberta, Calgary and Edmonton might both experience a mildly cold but sunny Christmas day. Calgary's high for the day will be one degree, while Edmonton will be a bit cooler at minus three degrees.

Saskatoon and Regina could see colder temperatures at minus eight and minus seven respectively. However, the sun will still be out, and snow is still not expected.

Winnipeg is going to be cold, seeing a Christmas day temperature of minus 11. However, despite its reputation for harsh winters, the city will still not see any snow falling.

In Ontario, Toronto could have a relatively mild Christmas day. No snow will be falling, but it will be cloudy. The temperature is expected to reach a high of four degrees.

The weather in Ottawa isn't predicted to be much different but will be slightly colder at minus one with a mix of sun and clouds.

Montreal's temperature is predicted at minus one degree. The city could see some snow with a 60 percent chance of flurries. However, that might not amount to much accumulation on the ground.

Even Halifax, which has already seen a pretty brutal winter storm hit this year, is expected to have a mild Christmas day with a mix of sun and cloud and a high of zero degrees.

The weather can still change in the days leading up to Christmas day, but unless you already have snow on the ground it looks like Canada is mostly going to have a green holiday season.
