On Thursday, temperatures are expected to hit the high 60s, with lows later at night in the mid 50s.
On Sunday, as a cold front moves through the region, the weather service expects the showers and thunderstorms to continue. “We are hardly seeing any bets on a white Christmas as most punters are looking to back record temperature highs”.
This afternoon brings more clouds than sun although any sunshine at this point would be quite the Christmas treat. Even with the extra clouds, highs will approach record levels as most locations flirt with the 80 degree mark.
Now that I have the next few days out of the way, we need to talk about the latest forecast updates concerning this weekend.
After the storm threat subsides, forecasters say, the high temperature in Atlanta on Christmas Eve is expected to be 74.
It’s not often that you hear the word “muggy” in a weather forecast for Christmas Eve in MA.
Temperatures at or above 70 degrees will span from Florida all the way into southern New England covering some 1,200 miles and 20 percent of the Lower 48. The warmest Christmas Eve on record at Dulles International Airport was set over 33 years ago when the temperature reached 71 degrees. It looks mainly dry Thursday and Friday with the exception of brief light rain or sprinkles which are possible Thursday morning as another wave of low pressure moves through. Secure holiday decorations. Rain and possible thunderstorms will cause wet roads.
Temperatures will warm up a bit Wednesday, getting up to 37 degrees, he said.
Thursday will see a high of 36 degrees with a low predicted to be around 28 degrees. Expect much of the same on Wednesday, with clouds and rain accompanied by highs and lows in the high 50s. No rain is forecast for Sunday. That will bring another chance of rain and storms early next week. And as far as having snow on the ground for Christmas Day (in Ohio), it happens about one in every three years.
