A rainy week, warm Christmas

22 Dec 2014 | Author: | No comments yet »

Atlanta weather | Christmas Eve will be rainy.

A rainy week is ahead, with temperatures rising as high as 60 degrees on Christmas Day, eliminating any chance for a white Christmas, the National Weather Service said. Chilly conditions and light rain are expected for parts or all of Monday and Tuesday in the Charlotte area, and that will be followed on Christmas Eve by heavier rain and a chance of thunderstorms.Christmas Day will be mostly dry, but last-minute shoppers will need an umbrella as forecasters are predicting as much as two inches of rain Tuesday into Christmas Eve morning. There is a slight potential for light freezing rain in the west — affecting Franklin, northern Worcester, and northwest Middlesex counties — overnight Monday into Tuesday. The chance of rain is 40 percent Monday, increasing to 80 percent Tuesday and 100 percent Wednesday, Monahan said, adding that there’s a 10 percent chance of rain early in the day on Christmas.

Temperatures were chilly enough around daybreak for spotty freezing drizzle to fall in the northwest mountains of North Carolina, but no significant icing problems were reported. Afternoon highs will be in the upper 40s Monday, mid-50s Tuesday, low 60s Wednesday and low 50s Thursday, with morning lows in the mid-40s Tuesday, mid-50s Wednesday and upper 30s Thursday. There’s a slight chance of a rain/snow mix in the mountain counties early Thursday as the precipitation ends and temperatures fall to around freezing.

It will bring heavy downpours and gusty winds just in time for the holiday. “There could be some lingering showers into Christmas morning, but the showers would end during the morning hours,” said meteorologist Alan Dunham.
