Ho Ho Whoa! Why Central Texas Is Getting A VERY Warm Christmas
Hope you've been enjoying the crisp winter air we've had the last few days. Like every cold spell in the Lone Star State, it doesn't last. (Insert big sigh here) At least you got to wear your warm clothes a couple of times, right?
I've lived in Texas all my life. As a child, I always wanted snow on Christmas Day. Growing up, I seem to remember one or two holidays when there were a few white flakes coming out of the sky, but never anything more than a light dusting.
By the way, a white Christmas is defined as one inch of snow on the ground on the morning of December 25th.
If you were hoping for a white Christmas in Central Texas, I hate to break it to you, but it's not happening.
On the other hand, if you wanted to barbeque and hang out around the pool, this is the Christmas for you!
So What's Going On With Central Texas Weather?
In fact, Meteorologist Sean Bellafiore says we have the potential for a record high temperature on Christmas Day. The rain will stay away, keeping us dry, and Central Texas will likely end December with a rainfall deficit. 2021 is on track to be our the 4th driest December all time.
So the good news is you can plan for outdoor activities on Christmas Day, and wear your festive shorts. The bad news is your electric bill will probably go up this weekend, because you'll be running the air conditioner quite a bit!
