I wish there was better news in the world of weather for Christmas, but sadly, there isn't. We will have snow on the ground for Christmas Eve, but it will disappear as the warm air surges north and brings some very moist air and heavy rain with it. And we are talking about the potential for some serious rain amounts.
What to expect:
This storm is a big mess. And it may cause some heartache for some as flooding is a real concern. Too much rain, too much snowmelt, and all in too short of a time span. We must be thankful that we have not been very wet this fall/early winter. Our lakes, ponds, reservoirs all have room to handle a bunch of water.
Stay safe. Have a Merry Christmas. God bless.
