Christmas Eve Storm Update

Things are still on tap for a big, warm storm in the East on Christmas Eve. It will be quite windy wherever the black lines (isobars, lines of equal barometric pressure) are close together which is over most of the map.

There is the potential for strong thunderstorms in the Southeast, although it is too soon to say exactly where (this far out the models can show the region of the thunderstorms but not the specific locations). Flying in the East will be quite turbulence (don't eat a big meal right before boarding!).

Snow will fall in the Upper Midwest with some light snow at the airline hubs in Minneapolis and Chicago.

I predict there will be considerable airline disruption and would recommend an earlier departure if waivers are issued.
