Watching Day After Christmas CloselyDecember 19th, 2012 at 11:08 pm by Chad Evans under Chad's WLFI Weather Blog
We need to continue to monitor the day after Christmas for icy wintry mix & perhaps some snow. This storm looks to originate in the northwest Gulf, then take an “Inside Runner” type track from Lake Charles, Louisiana to Memphis, Tennessee & then Lafayette, Indiana. This is normally THE track for the heaviest snows in our area, but it appears this storm will track more on top of us, than to our east (at least right now), owing to subtropical ridging to our southeast helping to push it to the west & northwest.
This could change & mean more snow than icy mix, however. I still like the wintry mix scenario more, as of right now & really don’t like a wide, broad changeover to rain in part of the area either, given the surface high to the north bleeding in a steady supply of cold, dry air.
However, it appears the mix may end as all snow for the area.
