Atlanta weather | Christmas Eve will be rainy.

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. MUSKEGON, MI – Rain, not snow, is in store the first part of the holiday week, but there’s a decent chance for snow on Christmas Day, according to the National Weather Service.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.Lashing rains, high winds and thunderstorms look set to mess up holiday travel plans for millions of Americans this week as the country heads for a mostly wet — not white — Christmas.

The storm is then expected to move northeastward, battering the East Coast with wet and windy weather on Wednesday — right at the prime pre-holiday travel time. “It’s going to be a rainmaker, for sure. 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. There’s the threat of locally heavy rain and this system could be windy enough to disrupt travel at airports in the east,” said Roy Lucksinger, lead meteorologist at the Weather Channel.” The developing storm already was causing disruption in Southern California, with locally gusting winds bringing down trees and power lines overnight. 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.

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. A high-wind warning was in effect through Monday morning with gusts of up to 75 mph, NBC Los Angeles reported. “The Gulf states are going to see the worst of that severe weather on Tuesday,” Lucksinger said. 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.
