Friday Travel Weather Tracker

It's a chilly start to our Christmas weekend.

Good Friday to one and all and Merry Christmas. We're kicking off the long Christmas weekend and today is going to be a very busy travel day across the tri state and the country. I have you all set to track the weather you may encounter as you head over the river and through the woods today. I will also talk about the rest of the weekend forecast and peek into next week.

We will see a lot of leftover clouds out there today and there could be a light shower or two hanging around. The GFS shows the threat for a drop or flake...



High temps will range from 40-45 degrees and then drop into the 30s by early evening. That's when a festive snowflake may mix in. Let's track today's weather...






What about the temps for Santa as he makes his rounds Christmas Eve into Christmas Morning?



The threat for any flakes for Sunday is low right now as the energy that teased us with a Christmas storm hangs back across Texas into early next week. There is a system diving in from the northwest that may clip the region with some flurries.

With the energy holding back... many of the models now decide to bring it out and develop the storm for Tuesday and Wednesday...

At this point... I'm tired of tracking the silly thing. It's going to do what it wants to do anyway. haha

I'll have another update later today. Have a great Friday and be safe if you're travelling. Take care.
