December's full moon is known as the Cold Moon or Frost Moon in the northern hemisphere.

"The moon's orbit is not a circle, it's sort of an egg shape so sometimes it's further away and sometimes it's close to us", Head of Astronomy at the Cranbrook Institute of Science in Bloomfield Hills Michael Narlock told WWJ Newsradio 950's Jason Scott. Due to this phenomenon from the ground you can see the larger size of the lunar disk than usual. That supermoon will also be the second full moon of the month, making it a "super blue moon". The weather forecast calls for partly cloudy skies on Sunday night, and you can check the National Weather Service's graphical forecast for a more specific prediction.

According to Space.com, supermoons occurs when a point in a full moon's orbit is closest to Earth. It doesn't always correspond with a supermoon (though it did in December 2016).
