Happy Holiday greetings and Merry Christmas to one and all! I hope everyone is having a good holiday season. The winter solstice has passed in the Northern Hemisphere. From now until June, the days will slowly get longer. Across North America, the winter weather has been unusually tepid considering it’s December. We’ll continue our look at winter weather safety this week with a quick wind chill review. There are many other interesting stories to review, so let’s get started.

Please keep in mind that ONLY NOAA weather radio, your local National Weather Service office, or reliable broadcast media are the BEST sources of important, timely, and potentially life-saving information on winter storm watches, warnings, and other related weather advisories! None of the links on this page should be used for life-&-death decisions or the protection of property!
