There appear to be several conflicting signals for the overall weather pattern across North America for the rest of December. This leads to a lower confidence in the outlook. However, I am fairly confident that temperatures will continue to average above to much above normal over Alaska and into northwestern Canada during the month. This should mean that the main path for cold air will be directed down through the eastern Prairies and into Ontario and western Quebec. The main storm track may be close to the East and Atlantic coast.

(CONAD) have tracked Santa’s flight.
The tradition began in 1955 after a Colorado Springs-based
Sears Roebuck & Co. advertisement misprinted the
telephone number for children to call Santa. Instead of
reaching Santa, the phone number put kids through to the
CONAD Commander-in-Chief’s operations “hotline.”
