Weather Whiplash: severe storms to snow?


The day after Christmas, snow and ice are possible, with a high of 38 and low of 23, AccuWeather says.

While strong winds are forecast in Scotland this week, elsewhere in the country balmier temperatures are expected in the run-up to Christmas, with an "exceptional" 16C on Tuesday or Wednesday, Mr Gaze said. It brings a secondary, even colder, blast of Arctic air in by Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

On Saturday, the skies will clear, but the mercury will drop, with a high expected around 14 degrees.

Heading in to the New Year, it looks like colder than normal conditions may persist through the first few weeks of January for the most part. Tíminn newspaper wrote the following about Christmas Day, 1920: "The most handsome Christmas weather of all Christmas days, mild frost, still, and full moon, and the weather has not been so lovely on Christmas in many years".

There had been some hopes in the United Kingdom of a little drift of the white stuff, given that the start of December has seen widespread sub-zero temperatures, and heavy snow in some northern areas, and even in London which has traditionally escaped any flurries.


And don't forget, if you have a bet on a white Christmas Day, you only need a single flake to fall.

EPS computer model snow forecast for Christmas.

Thursday is the shortest day of the year and the start of astronomical winter. Below is a snapshot of how much snow the European model is now predicting for Christmas Day.

Friday: A cold front will advance east across the Tennessee Valley and Midwest, with rain arriving in the Appalachians during the afternoon and evening. Overall, this looks like the driest day for travel, but not the warmest. Areas along the coast will be dry and mild until Friday night. By that measure, the five boroughs have enjoyed just 12 white Christmases since 1870. Rain should end as snow in the higher elevations from West Virginia to Maine. The track of that storm will determine which areas get rain, and which areas might get snow and ice.

Since it is Christmas and the forecast is approaching the 7-8 day mark, I'll go through what COULD happen, based off of what the latest major models are showing.
