According to ABC News, a new storm will traverse the U.S. from the West Coast to the central U.S. by Wednesday. Snow will be primarily to the north and rain and thunderstorms in the South and Ohio Valley.
By Christmas Eve, the system will move east with heavy rain and thunderstorms. With the colder air, the rain will turn to snow from the Great Lakes to the southern Appalachians.
Meteorologists from BAMWX pointed out this week "another big one" is possible for Christmas week.
"Current 500mb pattern day of today's storm on the left. A LOT of similarities for the #Christmas storm on the charts via the EPS day 8. The smoothed-out ensemble means cant see some of the details the op sees but you get the point. Another big one possible...," BAMWX said
