Christmas storm threat, but where’s the cold?

Perfectly timed for Christmas a new storm looks like it will roll in from the south on Monday. The same system that brought Phoenix, AZ their first rain since mid October will head for the gulf of Mexico and then turn north toward Maryland. Unfortunately for snow lovers, there is just not enough cold air to produce any real threat of a white Christmas. A few of the colder valleys north and west of Baltimore could have some sleet if the rain starts early enough on Monday, otherwise it looks like more steady rain for most of the mid Atlantic region. Once the storm passes Maryland, however, it’s expected to rapidly intensify moving into New England. As the strengthening storm pulls away, a strong northwest wind will tap into colder air with snow likely in the mountains and a slight chance for a few snow showers around Baltimore on Tuesday.
