ORLANDO, Fla.- – There will be trouble nationally for Christmas, but they will be on a much smaller scale.

Locally, we will get rid of the heavy, steady rain in time for Christmas Eve. Christmas Day will feature a few stray showers along the coast, but most are dry with temperatures climbing to near 80 degrees.

The worst weather for the holiday week will be on the West Coast and mountains. You will encounter greater travel impacts post Christmas.
