Dallas Christmas forecast: A VERY early look at what Santa might get

See also

Weather-wise, we’re a long way from Christmas if you want a GOOD forecast for Santa (or for yourself!), but it’s a question asked by many so I thought now would be a good time to start a Christmas forecast thread, for what it’s worth.

So…let’s take a look into the long-range “snowball” for Dec 24-25 and see what’s brewing for the Metroplex in this Christmas' world of weather.

Oh, my…this is going to be an interesting one. All three of our primary long-range models (GFS, ECMWF, and FNMOC) show another arctic front blasting through on Dec 20.

However, none of these show any precipitation with the system as the upper-level component and the moisture we saw with the December 5th sleet storm do not appear to be available this time.

The cold air will probably last 2 or 3 days before southerly winds push it away and begin to warm things up; so my first stab at the weather for Christmas Eve and Christmas 2013 is for mild and dry.

Check back for updates every day between now and Dec 23.

Merry Christmas!
