Christmas travel weather 

Posted: 6:30 am Wednesday, December 20th, 2017

An active and changeable weather pattern the next 5-15 days presenting challenges for planes, trains and automobiles.

It’ll feel like winter again by Christmas into the early days of the New Year.

There appears to be a “window of opportunity” for some sort of snow or ice system in parts of the Southern and Southeastern U.S around the 29th give or take a few days.

Obviously nothing specific on the charts as of now, so speculative at this point.

Then the “January Thaw” middle of the month.
