A few days ago the weather was supposed to be clear and cold for Christmas. That was before Brendan started praying for snow. It is currently snowing outside, and, while it is being blamed on a low pressure system, I am picturing Mom and a few angels out there pushing some cold air around....
Snow Storm Heads to Nation's Capital After Dumping Wintry Mix in the South
Published December 25, 2010 | Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- With a rare white Christmas in parts of the Southeast and snow predicted for the nation's Capital, airlines canceled hundreds of flights and urged travelers to rethink their plans, while travel authorities warned of potentially dangerous roads.
After blanketing parts of the Midwest and hampering motorists there on Christmas Eve, the storm dipped south late Friday. Winter weather advisories were in effect Saturday morning from Arkansas to the Carolinas and from West Virginia to central Alabama. Much of North Carolina was under a winter storm warning.
The National Weather Service said the storm could bring more than 5 inches of snow to the Washington region. Meteorologist Stephen Konarik said the storm could hit the area Sunday morning and end Sunday night or early Monday, with the peak snowfall Sunday afternoon and early evening.
The wintry weather is the result of a low pressure system moving along the Gulf coast. It is expected to intensify and move northeast on Sunday to the mid-Atlantic states and New England.
