Pat Shingleton: "December Snow..."
A look-back" to this date in 2008 found a developing low along the Texas coast, tracking northeast, edging closer to south Louisiana. During the evening hours, the National Weather Service predicted a possible "wintry mix" in our area at daybreak. The Channel 2 weather team was "on-the-fence" as to whether it would be a sleet or snow event. Unusually, I awoke that morning at 5:00 AM, as snow fell at a rapid rate. I sped to the station where three inches had accumulated by 9:00 AM. Josh Eachus finalized his snow research yesterday reporting that if you are looking for a guaranteed white Christmas, head to Michigan, Minnesota or Washington state. Christmas Eve and Day, 2004 was our last "White Christmas" episode with a dusting of snow.
