When Should We Leave To Beat The Snow — Holiday Travel Weather

When Should We Leave To Beat The Snow — Holiday Travel Weather

David Paul stripped me of it long ago so blame him. "If we don't have a white Christmas the potential is there during the week", he added. Ergo, those ugly Christmas sweaters and the matching pjs should get good use this year. That's as far as its forecast goes.

There is rain or a chance of rain in the forecast all weekend, with rain likely on Christmas as well, it said.

If it's any consolation, showers won't make for the worst travel conditions, but just plan to navigate some wet roads if your destinations are in and around the southeast. It does show highs in the 40s the two days at Christmas, and also flirts with the idea of winter precipitation somewhere across the area the 26th or the 27th. Tíminn newspaper wrote the following about Christmas Day, 1920: "The most attractive Christmas weather of all Christmas days, mild frost, still, and full moon, and the weather has not been so handsome on Christmas in many years". Hardley worth a mention.

Everything looks so nice and pretty outside with that fresh coating of snow. It's expected to be cold everywhere.

With the city getting almost 17 inches of snow every December, Anchorage, Alaska, is likely to have a White Christmas. This will bring the colder air back to the region.

Sunshine for most of Friday will raise temperatures to nearly the freezing mark at 31 degrees, the NWS says.

Packingham said he planned to fill up his gas tank and put his remote vehicle starter to good use as the cold air takes up residence. In 2012, a cold front brought hail, sleet and half a foot of snow to parts of Denton and Collin County.

Backing up to Tuesday, it will be mostly sunny with a high temperature we'd normally expect in mid November - that is, around 54 degrees. Of course, some of you know that Saturday is Festivus.

Are you "dreaming of a white Christmas"?

"The greatest chance of a white Christmas will be across the Midwest, Great Lakes, northern New England and the Rockies", AccuWeather forecaster Paul Pastelok said. The snapshot below is what the model is showing for Christmas morning.

The GFS models, one of the American forecast models, is the less snowy model.

That leaves us with the slim possibility of a Christmas Eve snowfall.

BUT... We've now gone a week without any snow reinforcements, and in fact, we have even had a few light rain events. In the back channels of the internet however, twitter, facebook and blog sites, etc, models and extremes are touched on and drooled over.

Though these maps aren't based on extensive weather data or official weather stations, they reveal how varied snowfall can be between different cities and countries. Therefore always be tired of posts online that show extended forecasts. High pressure cells that large indicate a devastating and deadly arctic outbreak, even for us in Houston. But the last time it occurred was 2002, when about an inch of snow fell. We remain cautiously optimistic keeping in mind that a subtle change in track or timing could spell more of a mix or rain than snow.

Let's start where the models do agree.

It all depends on whether Old Man Winter will provide the right atmospheric ingredients at the right time.
