Drier and colder for Christmas

Our weather pattern will change to cooler and drier in time for Christmastime.

If you’re traveling check the maps below. Next 3-days any significant snow stays along or north of I-70 except central OK and some spots out West/SW.

Longer term we’ll have to monitor a changing and challenging weather pattern to end the month on into early January, as the Atlanta NWS discussion mentions:

***Still looks like parts of the South and Southeast U.S. have to keep an eye on the window of Dec 28-Jan 8th for winter precip but no details are possible at this distance.***

Then “January Thaw” middle of the month.

Obviously changes will occur in the maps above, but I’ll be on holiday vacation. Be safe and Merry Christmas.
