Christmas Eve...

>> Wednesday, December 24, 2008

Above is today's edition of the Carolina Weather Video. No new video will be cut tomorrow, but I should have a new one for you bright and early Friday morning.

First of all, a reminder about our little snow contest. See the blog post below for all of the details. Basically, post your forecast for whether or not you think the Charlotte airport will see accumulating snow for the remainder of this Winter in the comments section below. If you do, post the date that you think it will occur. The closest person will win some fantastic News 14 Carolina swag (possibly a pen, pencil, bookmark, or maybe even a cap!).

Some showers will push through tonight, and tomorrow's forecast is a bit tricky. Some modeling lingers the rain chances through much of the day. For the time being, I have continued to do with the idea of some drying taking place from north to south tomorrow, but it is a low confidence forecast.

Look for cool and drizzly weather Friday, followed by a very mild Saturday and some rain Sunday.

I still think a colder pattern should settle in here around the New Year. Looks like the 6z GFS has caught on to the idea....

Snow prediction: This may be a dry year for snow accumulations in this area due to the current weather pattern, but we always seem to get at least a trace each year. This is difficult to predict, but I'm going to go strictly off the latest GFS model run, and say Jan. 5th.

Merry Christmas Matthew. Thanks for all that you do on News 14 and here on the blog.

It seems that the cold weather is trying to make a come back... maybe a few days entering into 2009 we might perhaps get our share of the white stuff...? Just like other snow fans out there, it would be nice if we can get to see a snowstorm we had back in the winter of 2003-2004. Merry Christmas to Matthew & his family and to everyone else!

Matthew, it looks like that front has big storms and theres even a tornado warning in Al right now. Is there a chance of severe weather for us tonight?

Merry Christmas to all of you as well.

Should not have any severe weather issues here tonight....atmosphere is much more stable than in Alabama.
