Christmas Day weather tracker

Merry Christmas, everyone! Our big storm system we’ve talked about for more than a week caused a ton of problems across the region Christmas Eve. That system pulls away later today before the pattern cranks back up for the weekend.

A few Christmas Morning snowflakes will be flying for some areas. Afternoon clearing will allow for temps to warm into the upper 30s and low 40s.

Friday’s weather looks very good with temps approaching 50 with some sun.

The return of arctic air into the United States will then combine with a very active southern branch of the jet stream. That will lead to a lot of winter in the coming weeks. We get one system to move in here this weekend with rain Saturday into Sunday. That system may end as snow Sunday night or Monday via the Canadian Model…

That same model then goes crazy with the cold to start 2015…

Other models do not bring that type of cold in here that quickly. Instead, they keep a stalled out across the region and continue to spit out storm systems along it. That’s really what you want to see if you want a snowfall. Every model delivers a snowfall to our region next week, but they differ on the day it happens.

The new version of the GFS says Happy New Year…
