Long-Range Look: Will There be a White Christmas? What About a Chilly One?

The long-range ImpactWeather forecast continues to indicate the possibility of a major change in the weather pattern, and that change will deliver much colder weather just before Christmas for most of the Lower 48. Even though confidence in the forecast is still on the low side because we’re examining a time period beyond 10 days, the forecast data is trending toward the colder pattern. Currently it looks like a strong Canadian cold front will surge across the Great Plains and to the northern Gulf Coast by the 22nd bringing breezy and much colder air as it passes by.
