No video this evening, but I wanted to put up a quick post.
First of all, winds will get pretty gusty tomorrow as the cold front approaches and moves through. Winds will gust out of the south to 20 or 30mph in the Piedmont with even breezier conditions up in the mountains. We will see showers and maybe a storm or two sweep through tomorrow. A few severe wind events look possible, but the best severe weather threat will probably be just off to our north in the mid-Atlantic.
Christmas Eve will feature lots of sun and highs in the 50s here in the Piedmont.
And, I am just about ready to completely throw in the towel for any snow chance Christmas Day into Wednesday. The GFS does develop a nice coastal low pressure area, but most of the effects remain in eastern North Carolina. And, most modeling is indicating the atmosphere will be just a touch too warm for snow even if we do get some precip in here. So, while I still won't completely rule out a few flurries Tuesday or Tuesday night, the chances are dwindling.
Let's wait until we get Sunday's model data in before completely throwing in the towel....
