    The holiday shopping is in full swing. The weather will be cooperative for most areas of the U.S. this weekend.


    As the shoppers take to the malls and stores Saturday, most will not have weather issues to contend with. Temperatures in the eastern U.S. will be seasonably cool. Some shoppers will see light snow.

    "The Great Lakes area will have some light snow", said AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Brian Edwards. "Light snow will fall from northern Michigan down through Ohio and into north western Pennsylvania."

    Shopping on Sunday? "Most of the U.S. will remain clear with the exception of Arizona and New Mexico," Edwards said. "They will get some rain in the valley areas and some snow at the higher elevations on Sunday."

    Overall, as the shoppers go about their gift searches this weekend, they will not have to deal with any weather headaches.

    After the gift search is over, the wrapping tips in this video from howdini.com can help you get your presents ready to go.
