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.
