(CNN) -- Parts of west Texas could see a white Christmas this year, though other areas, like Dallas, can expect rain.
Amarillo and Lubbock will get a "light dusting" of snow, and elsewhere in the country, some snow is expected in the Great Lakes area, CNN Meteorologist Reynolds Wolf said.
About 1 to 4 inches of snow was expected to fall in parts of New Mexico, according to the National Weather Service
"Travel is still discouraged throughout the region due to slick and hazardous roadways," the weather agency said.
The weekend looked mild in many parts of the country, with chilly weather in the northern plains into the Rockies.
Air travelers scurrying across the country on Christmas Eve will likely get a reprieve from weather-related delays Saturday, as no major delays were reported at the country's largest airports Saturday morning.
According to the Federal Aviation Administration's website, airports from Boston to Los Angeles and from Miami to Seattle had delays of 15 minutes or less.
The relatively travel-friendly weather came a day after high winds and snow prompted airport and highway delays in several areas across the country.
On Friday, delays were reported at New York's LaGuardia airport, and Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport tried to play catch up after 5,200 flights were affected following severe weather on Thursday.
