Atlanta weather | Christmas Day to see sunnier skies

While there won’t be a white Christmas for those in metro Atlanta, Thursday morning’s temperatures may feel like Christmas.

Residents can expect to wake up to temperatures in the upper 30s, Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Brad Nitz said. As the day goes on, those temps will increase, eventually reaching the low 50s, with the help of mostly sunny skies.

Those conditions may be a breath of fresh air after all the rain Tuesday and Wednesday. Though the weather map Wednesday night showed little to no rain activity moving across the state, one weather advisory remained in effect for a small portion of metro Atlanta — Forsyth and Fulton counties were under a flood warning as Big Creek had the potential for minor flooding, the National Weather Service said. The warning was set to remain in effect until 1 p.m. Thursday.

Like Thursday, Friday is set to be mostly sunny, with highs in the upper 50s after morning lows in the mid-30s.

The sunshine may not last, though, as rain is possible over the weekend, Nitz said. The chance of rain is 40 percent Saturday, increasing to 60 percent Sunday. Weekend highs will be in the 50s, with lows in the 40s.
