Weather could hamper Christmas for some

It's Christmas week, and everyone's paying extra close attention to the forecast.

Past Christmas weather across the U.S. has ranged from the expected snow and ice to heavy rains, flooding and even tornadoes.

This year, severe weather is possible across the Southeast in the days leading up to Christmas, and on Christmas day, that same low will move through the Midwest and the Northeast, bringing rain and snow.

On the West Coast, there's an area of low pressure making landfall in the Northeast, bringing more rain and snow to the region.

Even though some parts of the country may see some active weather on Christmas and the days leading up to it, none of these weather systems look like they’ll be strong enough to ruin the holiday.
