The main thrust of today's video is our storm system tonight and tomorrow, but I will also talk about next week and the weather pattern as we head through mid-December.
Clouds are increasing around the region today as our next storm system is taking shape in the northern Gulf. Snow is flying deep down into Texas today, and Houston will likely wind up with 3 or more inches!
That accumulating snow will spread up through parts of Louisiana, central and south Mississippi into Alabama tonight and into northwest Georgia.
For our area, I expect light rain to move in late tonight, and we will see a chilly rain for much of tomorrow morning. By midday, the window of opportunity is open for some snow to mix in with the rain, and some spots will likely see the precip end as a period of mainly snow.
For our viewing area, this will likely be more of a novelty than anything else for those that do see some snow. I don't anticipate travel problems in our viewing area, but I do think a slushy inch or two of snow could accumulate on some grassy areas and car tops.
Lows will plummet into the 20s Sunday morning, and despite sunshine, highs will only make it into the 40s Sunday.
A big rain-making system will roll through here Tuesday night and Wednesday next week.
