It’s beginning to look like a wet Christmas.
The weather forecast for Christmas week calls for high winds, a torrential downpour and possibly a huge headache towards holiday travelers who are going out-of-town. A large developing north-south cold front threatens to deliver rain and gusty winds along the Gulf Coast and snow in the Upper Midwest on Tuesday. The storm is then expected to move northeastward, battering the East Coast with wet and windy weather on Wednesday, right at the prime pre-holiday travel time.
It will cause stress and major headaches of airports in the midwest and east coast as they are bracing for delays and possibly cancellations of flights.
The storm has already hit Southern California, disrupting power lines and bringing down trees.
