Check www.weather.com. I’m found them to be very accurate. Your hourly report shows mid to lower 50s tonight with raining coming in tonight but clear and windy in the morning.

The front squall line about 10 minutes away from where I live, nearly on the coast.
Looks like the southern edge is starting to dissipate some.
Winds been kicking 40-50 mph all day.

First measurable snowfall of the season here in the lower Columbia Basin of Washington State. It is nice to see it. Been no shortage of snow up in the Cascades, where Steven’s Pass (my namesake) may be closed for an extended time due to trees falling on vehicles!

For weather around here, I generally go to the NWS Pendleton site, Weather Underground, and Accuweather. They all missed the intensity of the recent straight-line winds, however.

I would also keep an eye out for potential flash flooding in Northern Georgia tonight, there have been flood warnings on the northern edge of the severe weather areas.

Be safe deep south FReeps. Weird to have Christmas day red zone weather. Even here in DFW had thunderstorms. Never experienced thunder on Christmas Eve or day. Just seems flat out strange.

Snow on Christmas Day for southwest Arkansas. That is a pleasant first for me. In my hometown of Shreveport there has never been snow on Christmas. Snow from previous days, but never on the day.

A White Christmas!

That happened 10 years or so down here on Christmas day, couldn't believe it.
Had inch to inch and a half, all the neighborhood kids and some adults (me included) went wild.

Looking at the radar, been doing that all day, looks like there are two distinct lines right now.
The last line is on top of us right now, very *airish* outside.

Tornado Warning: Autauga,Elmore & Montgomery Counties. That puts me in the middle of it!

Sirens are going off, but nobodies seen any funnel clouds. This is a lot like last April (2011).

Went outside. Raining hard. Dark as pitch. How do you “see” clouds or tornados on a night like this?

I’m on 14 between Wetumpka and Tallassee on the Tallassee side. Looks like it will hit Wetumpka and then Eclectic. I might be a hair off to the South and safe.

Clear skies, moon and stars out for us right now.
The line is about 100 miles away from us now and was still seeing lightening off the East and Southeastern horizon.
The cloud tops on some of the storms was 50,000+ feet.
Be careful, it was *rocking and rolling* when it came through here.

According to our weather guys (B’ham area), no reports of injuries in Mobile thankfully. All the crappy stuff is east of us now but now we have to endure high winds all night and into tomorrow as the cold front moves in. All in all a crappy weather Christmas Day. Can’t complain too much though since we weathered it well, so far.

God bless and protect you and everyone else on the Southern coast.

I live outside Houston and we had a downpour and wind for about an hour around 4pm. Then the sun came back out.
