COMMUTER'S FORECAST through Christmas Day

A moisture rich low pressure system will produce additional rainfall
across the coastal Southeast today. Heavy showers and thunderstorms
drenching Florida early this morning will move east as a cold front passes
through the Sunshine State. Lingering showers will persist this afternoon
before drier conditions return Christmas Eve. Further north, a moderate
risk for excessive rainfall remains in effect today for coastal South
Carolina as rainfall rates could exceed 2" per hour. Some locations may
receive as much as 7" before rain tapers off Tuesday morning. The
Southeast will welcome a drier stretch of weather the second half of
Christmas Eve and pleasant conditions on Christmas Day.

Santa could give Rudolph's red nose a break across the eastern
half of the U.S. Christmas Eve night as dry conditions will be com-
mon for most eastern regions. In fact, tranquil weather conditions
through Christmas Day will make for a nice stocking stuffer from
Mother Nature for those traveling through the holiday. High
temperatures in parts of the nation's mid-section will soar into the
60s while parts of the southern Plains reach the 70s both Christ-
mas Eve and Christmas Day. Temperature anomalies will on
average range between 10-15 degrees above normal from the
Great Plains to the Northeast through mid-week.
