On the latest edition of AccuWeather LIVE, we took a look at an upcoming storm system set to impact the U.S. As people begin their holiday travel plans for the weekend, we took a look at how the developing weather could impact these plans, as warming temperatures and rain create fog and flooding hazards.

The first day of astronomical winter is on Saturday, Dec. 21, so Stef Davis took a look at the winter solstice on this week's show. Jim Dickey also reported on how the cold weather that will begin gripping much of the nation as the seasons change can affect the body, and how people can protect themselves.
