White Christmas Or No?

Eight days away from Christmas and the best answer to my question is still...who knows? Model mayhem continues with all three long-range computer forecast models still out in La la land with their forecasts. They are latching onto the idea of a winter storm dropping into the Desert Southwest around Christmas. For now, all three seem to think this storm will be rather moisture-starved so that's why the snowfall maps are coming up rather bare at this time in New Mexico. My confidence level in these forecasts still remains very low. More later.

The Truth Is Stranger Than Fiction!
