Winter storm causes headaches for travel

Posted By Janice Dean On December 21, 2012 @ 7:26 am In Weather | Comments Disabled

Good morning everyone!   Happy Friday!

I have to admit I am glad I’m not travelling today!  Ugh.  What a mess across the Midwest and Northeast.  Thankfully things should clear out this weekend for most of the country.  Look at some of these snow totals:

[1]

This powerful system is now moving over the Great Lakes with additional snow and wind gusts making holiday travel difficult. 

[2]

Cold air behind the system has wind chill values in the single digits!   The associated cold front will bring heavy rain and winds over the Northeast Corridor.  The storm will move quickly, but there will be lingering snow over the great lakes through Saturday. 

[3]

Meantime, a new storm will bring heavy rain and mountain snow over Northern California.

I’m off next week for Christmas, but I will make sure to post a few open blogs so you can chat through the holiday.  AJ has been keeping us up to date on Don’s condition, and so far he’s doing well all things considered!   We’re so grateful.  Get better, Don.  We miss you buddy!

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays everyone!

JD
