The weather will not much help U.S. gross domestic product over the course of the final week of the year. Storms currently cover about half the nation, and heavy rain, wind and snow are going to keep people off the roads and delayed at airports for a while.
The Weather Channel reports:
Severe thunderstorms, either from a continuing squall line or new development, will remain a threat ahead of the surging cold front from southern Virginia and the Carolinas to eastern Georgia and northern and central Florida. Damaging straight-line winds and a few tornadoes are possible. Some tornadoes in the eastern Carolinas may be strong.
