A strong cold front will supply the lift to generate showers and a few thunderstorms. I am not expecting any severe weather. The greatest threat for severe weather will occur in Southern Louisiana. The rain will clear out for Wednesday night. Christmas Eve will be very chilly. The main upper trough will transport arctic air for the eastern half of the United States. Christmas Day is looking sunny and nice.
