Philadelphia Weather: Unseasonably Warm Temperatures, Showers And Clouds To Take Over Region This Christmas

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- If you're dreaming of a white Christmas, this year will be a disappointment. The forecast calls for rainy weather along with mild afternoon temperatures.

Christmas Eve features sunny skies early and seasonable temperatures climbing into the mid to upper 40s. Clouds will fill in throughout the day before rain finally arrives later Friday night.

For families waiting to travel on Christmas Eve, the weather will cooperate throughout the day.

However, the later you wait to hit the roads conditions will turn unsettled as a system draws in rain later that night.

The storm looks to arrive overnight on Friday leading to wet roads through Christmas morning.

Luckily, the bulk of the rain falls overnight. Gradual clearing is likely once the storm departs as drier air begins to work back into our region.

Sorry team snow -- temperatures will be too mild to see any wintry precipitation this storm will be all rain.

Christmas Day 2021 will feature partly to mostly cloudy skies with unseasonably warm temperatures.

To finish the holiday weekend, Sunday will be bright and breezy with mild temperatures sticking around.
