A quick look ahead
A bit tight on time here so I will focus on our next event which will have New Years Eve celebration impacts. As I stated in the previous update, if you have plans, it would be wise to reach your destination Monday evening and plan on staying there. Folks planning on skiing should plan on arriving Monday, if not before, as travel Monday night and Tuesday would not be without issues.
While it is still early to iron out details, the model ideas today indicate that this is likely to be a mainly snow event for much of the interior with mix to rain scenario for the coastal plain. The storm is likely to last into Tuesday for the mountains, north, as well as eastern areas as it appears for now. This is NOT the final answer as of yet. We'll see how the cold coming in Sunday plays a role in the outcome.
Stay tuned for more updates over the weekend.
Outlook through Wednesday
After the New Years storm, the region appears to be clear until next late next week. Bundle up if you are heading out on Sunday as the breeze will have a bite.
