Stormy New Year’s Eve Expected

New Year’s Eve this year is expected to be a wet one, with possibly more severe storms as we just experienced on Christmas Eve. So, it seems to be a stormy “month of the Eve’s.” We will hope that there will not be any tornado warnings this time. But that is not guaranteed.

What we could end up experiencing is a mild day on Thursday (New Year’s Eve) with windy conditions ahead of a cold front approaching from our west. This storm system is expected to move more to our west this time, and “cut” up the Appalachians. This would keep much of the Southeast in the warm sector.

There could be more mountain snows with this next system, and anyone living in the Highcountry will be doing a dance since they are the lucky recipients so far this season. We’re not sure if they will get the same amounts as with the Christmas Eve storm, but it is possible.

For many on the Eve of Celebrations, it may not be the best idea to have any activities outdoors unless you can head inside quickly. Warm, wet and windy is the call for many on New Year’s Eve.
