Many of you will be traveling sometime during the next week to visit friends or relatives over Christmas week.  Looks like there will be a good bit of storminess this week over the eastern half of the country as well as a big storm hitting the Pacific Northwest.  Pay special attention if you are flying, since the storm that is likely to hit the Northeast around Christmas Day will affect flight schedules far and wide.  We may even see some severe weather at the southern end of the storm on Tuesday into Wednesday.  Otherwise, the rain in the Southeast should be a good thing for farmers who are experiencing some dry conditions, according to Rome Ethredge in the Seminole Crop E News, for example.  You can get updated QPF maps at
