    Dreaming of a White Christmas

    Friday 10 a.m.

    For the last couple of days, I have shown some maps that could be interpreted as predictions of at least some snow for the I95 corridor between D.C. and Boston. None of the possibilities were portrayals of imminent storms. In my first video today, I expanded the map size to take in all of North America and adjacent areas. You can watch the predicted changes in some of the polar regions.

    In the video, I promised a closer look at the near-term Northeast and Great Lakes weather, and that is in the following video.

    One map that caught my attention was the GFS 384-hour forecast for two days before Christmas. If you project its features out to Christmas Eve, there would be no White Christmas in the Northeast. Given the sensitive, and in some ways disturbing, content of that map, feel free to click to another part of accuweather.com right here: http://www.accuweather.com before looking below.
