Our weather prediction for Christmas
- Spending Christmas at an airport
- If you want to see your family
- See a white Christmas
Here’s our weather prediction for Christmas. The upcoming news about the weather can be summed up as “more of the same.” You got a taste of early winter storms over the last month along with the damage and destruction they caused, not to mention the disruption in travel schedules.
This will happen again Christmas week. So our advice is not to wait for the last minute to make your trips for Christmas. If you wait until Christmas Eve to travel you may be spending Christmas at an airport.
If you want to see your family at Christmas leave earlier in the week. Watch where your flight connections are and be aware of the weather at each connection point. You may only get half way to your destination and wind up spending Christmas in an airport away from your family and away from where you live.
With the increase in winter storm activity, flooding will become a problem once again. Not only melting snow going into the New Year, but increased rain storms in warmer climates like the south and the west coast. So if you would like to see a white Christmas and not be disappointed, just make your plans far enough ahead of time so you don’t get to watch your white Christmas from inside an airport.

COMMENTARY: Christmas week is two weeks away. If you are planning to travel that week then today would be a great day to make your reservations. If you already made them and your travel plans are too tight then make your revisions now. It might cost a little more to dodge a white Christmas at the airport but that will be a small price to pay.
