White Christmas possiblePosted Monday, December 20, 2010, at 4:17 PM
It's too early to get excited, but there's a chance for a quality snowstorm on Christmas Eve that could drop a few inches of snow at Cape Girardeau.
The computer models, as usual, will flip-flop several times between now and Friday. But right now they look very promising if you like the white stuff.
The GFS model projects 3-4 inches at Cape with higher amounts just to the north.
In typical fashion, Southeast Missouri will likely straddle the line between snow, freezing rain, and plain old rain. Yesterday the computer models suggested Cape would see mostly rain, but now they have shifted the rain-snow line to the south, giving us more snow.
We'll just have to wait and see what Winter Storm "Crosby Stills & Nash" will deliver for Christmas.
Lunar eclipse tonight
Tomorrow will bring an eclipse of the moon plus the winter solstice, the first time these two events have occured on the same day since the year 1638. The eclipse will peak at 2:17 AM CST tonight, but it will probably be too cloudy to see anything here.
