Stormy Piedmont Christmas

Sorry, we tried as hard as we could, but just couldn’t make a White Christmas happen this year.

Here’s the weather situation for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. A powerful storm system coming out of the Gulf of Mexico will move through the Great Lakes into Canada. A rare feature of this storm will be the development of a “Triple Point Low”…which just means that 3 low pressure systems come together to make an even more powerful storm.

For our area, here’s what we can expect. No Snow.

Christmas Eve:

  • Temps rising throughout the day into the late evening topping out into the 60’s.
  • 100% chance of rain. Amounts greater than 2 inches expected and 4 inches in isolated thunderstorms possible.
  • Gusty winds especially late evening.
  • Heavy rain.
  • Thunderstorms possible especially east (more on that in a minute)…

Christmas Day:

  • Front should clear the area by daybreak Christmas morning.
  • Gusty winds
  • Partly cloudy with highs in the low to mid 50’s.

Keep a close eye on the weather if you will be out Christmas Eve. It is shaping up to be a stormy night in the Piedmont. Advisories, Watches and Warnings may be issued.

About winter thunderstorms…If I recall my folklore correctly, 7-10 days after hearing thunder in winter it will snow! In the weather pattern we are entering, that is entirely possible!
