Bunker down for a 'brrrrr' Christmas weekend

UNDATED - Folks in Iowa don't have to wonder -- they know they'll have a white Christmas.  A storm has already dumped more than 9 inches of snow in the state.

The winter weather will be moving to the south and east.  It's expected hit Tennessee and Georgia on Christmas.  That means Atlanta, which is expected to get up to 3 inches, could have a measurable amount of snow on Christmas Day for the first time since 1882.

East Texans can expect much colder temperatures for the Christmas holiday weekend.  Your East Texas forecast calls for partly cloudy skies and gusty northwest winds.  Temperatures will struggle to reach the middle 40s Christmas afternoon with wind chills in the 30s.

Put another log on the fire for the next three nights. Low temperatures are expected to fall to the middle 20s both overnight Saturday and Sunday.  Even with the sunshine during the afternoon, highs will only be in the middle to upper 40s Sunday and Monday.
