    Get the sunglasses ready for Christmas Day.

    Another winter storm affected the area Christmas Eve morning, as a small coating of freezing rain was just enough to cause many roads to become sheets of ice, leading to many accidents.
     
    But what about Christmas hold?
     
    What a difference a day makes. After Wednesday's soggy start to the Christmas holiday, Thursday will be dry and full of sunshine.

    As the storm system departs late Wednesday night, the moist, milder air is replaced with drier, cooler air.  Temperatures will not drop below freezing Wednesday night, so another round of icing is not expected.

    The warmer southerly wind, from Wednesday, will turn westerly Thursday.

    Christmas Day will start on the windy side -- winds could range anywhere from 15 to 25 mph. Temps should hold in the upper 30s to low 40s throughout the area with plenty of sunshine Thursday.

    Expect another dry and cool day on Friday -- sun will give way to clouds before showers move in over the weekend.
