Weather update: Not looking good

It's ALMOST time to write off Christmas snow in these parts.

The saying in weather is "the trend is your friend" -- that is, follow the trend to find out what is going to happen.

Well, the trend is for the Christmas storm to be sheared out -- to essentially have all its energy sucked up by the system behind it.

By the time THAT system is ready to roll through, our cold air is long gone -- which means we see rain the couple days after Christmas.

Is there time for this to change -- yes, but it's unlikely.

Sorry!

Chance of White Christmas: 1 in 200 (down from 1 in 40)
Reasoning: No model support for a storm, despite a favorable setup

You've really got to stop getting my hopes up for snow each year...Still, I hope you have a very merry Christmas, Skip.

Skip - everyone talks about the whether but at least you're TRYING to do something about it!

Our son, Ladson, was with the Lari boys last night while Mary Frances & Elizabeth babysat...please tell her thanks from me!
