Christmas weather expected to be dry

Santa Claus can look forward to sunny and dry conditions on Christmas Day. 

After a weekend that brought less than an inch of rain to the area, the sun should start peaking through the clouds Tuesday, with temperatures in the 60s, National Weather Service forecaster Steve Anderson said. Winds are expected to blow at up to 20 mph.

Patchy fog is forecast before 10 a.m. Christmas Day, giving way to mostly sunny skies with a high near 53 degrees.

Rain is expected to return by Saturday, but wind gusts will likely subside and temperatures will remain consistent, with overnight lows in the mid-40s, Anderson said.

Most flights in and out of San Francisco International Airport have been on time, except for those making stops along the East Coast due to a major blizzard that was delaying departures and arrivals up to an hour Monday, according to SFO spokesman Mike McCarron.

Overall, it’s been wetter this year than last, with 5.91 inches of rain since July compared to 2.17 in the same period last year, Anderson said. He predicted more rain before the new year.
