I don’t know our actual departure time, but we will leave either tonight or tomorrow morning for a several week-long road trip for Christmas Break.
We are working on our route, but we are thinking somewhere in Texas either tonight and tomorrow night (or just tomorrow night); Slidell, LA; Tampa, FL; Atlanta, GA; then to my parents’ house in VA for several days.
It looks like our entire route will be in the rain, starting tomorrow evening, according to the GFS.
I am also watching the GFS for later next week and into Christmas Day. I think it will be too dry for a White Christmas, but it will be cold enough Christmas morning for snow. The moisture will be lacking, however. Strong Cold Air Advection (CAA) at the 850 mb level will keep the temperatures low, as shown in the graphic below:
…and the surface temperatures are shown here, as they respond to the CAA:
