Sunny Christmas Forecast But Changes Possible for New Year



    NBC10 First Alert Weather: Some Rain in Forecast

    After a mild Christmas, some rain could move in Monday morning. NBC10 First Alert Weather meteorologist Erika Martin says it should be mainly rain but some freezing rain is possible Monday. (Published Sunday, Dec. 25, 2016)

    Christmas day will shape up to be a nice, but warmer than average one. This time of year, temperatures should be in the low 40s for Philadelphia. Instead, we'll see upper 40s and potentially a few lower 50s in parts of our Philadelphia, Delaware, and even, Jersey Shore neighborhoods. Winds will be light Sunday, as we remain sunny to mostly sunny.

    In the following days, temperatures continue to climb, with Tuesday our warmest day. Some moisture and clouds move in by Monday witha  slight chance of freezing rain in colder areas, but it's more likely the region will see rain by Tuesday.

    Another system looks to skirt the area by Thursday potentially brings some mixed precipitation to the area ahead of a cold blast for next weekend and New Year's Eve. Currently, it looks like the New Year may bring some wet weather for the first of the year. This would follow the celebrations, which look to stay dry through midnight. However, models are not in agreement on this potential and we'll be continuing to update the forecast for the 1st of 2017 as we get closer.
