Stormy Tuesday, Colder Christmas Eve & Day

A powerful upper disturbance would normally bring a major snowstorm at this time in December, but not this year.  After several bitterly cold Arctic Blasts in November, December is much milder with above freezing air from Chicago to Boston.     There will be some snow making it a white Christmas for a few folks, but the vast majority will be wet but not white.   For us, a surge of warm air push through this morning and we’ll stay Spring-like on Tuesday as a strong cold front approaches.  There is a small risk for some strong storms ahead of the front Tuesday afternoon and evening with the highest chances between 5 – 10 PM. Behind the front, much colder air sweeps in for Christmas Eve & Day.  Driving home to Grandma’s tomorrow will not have any icing issues anywhere across the south.  If you’re going to the west & north, you’ll get out of the rain quicker.  If you go to the east or NE, you’ll stay in and out of showers.  Good luck and be safe.
