Christmas Eve Snow Likely for Upper Midwest

A major winter storm is forecast to develop over the lower Mississippi Valley on Tuesday, Dec. 23, says accuweather.com.
The storm, which they’re calling dynamic, is “likely to strengthen dramatically” as it races northeastward toward the eastern Great Lakes on Christmas Eve.

Snow during all of or part of the storm is likely in the Upper Midwest, says accuweather. This includes the cities of Chicago, Detroit and Indianapolis, and could reach as far south as Tennessee.

While it is too early to say where the heaviest snow will fall, there is the potential for whiteouts and a rapid freeze-up to develop over part of the Midwest.

Depending on where you live and which way the storm tracks, the storm will also bring strong winds, rain, thunderstorms, and dicey travel conditions.

  1. Interesting Christmas Week Weather

    I have been watching my weather guys. Chris Bailey is usually right on tnhe money. He has been right on the money through Fall into winter and has been suggesting this Christmas period scenario for the past 10 days or so.

    “The Christmas week setup is NOW getting a lot of attention from forecasters across the country. A huge buckle in the jet stream could create a bomb of a storm system across the Ohio Valley and Great Lakes on Christmas Eve.

    Check out the look from the European for next Wednesday morning. That’s pretty darn wicked.

    That’s a week away and that’s an eternity in the world of weather. Still, that’s pretty darn wild to see anytime of the year, especially around Christmas.
