If you're dreaming of a white Christmas, you'll certainly get one if you're headed to the beaches this holiday weekend; however, you'll need a jacket or a sweater if you do!

During the morning and afternoon on Christmas Eve, clouds should clear and afternoon highs will top out in the mid-60s -- good weather for any last-minute shoppers or travelers out there!

By the evening, temperatures will be mainly in the 50s, so if you're headed to any holiday parties or services, you'll want to grab the jackets and sweaters. Some more clouds will move in this evening with another cold front, which will bring even colder air to our area.

No issues for Santa Claus and his reindeer for their trip to the Gulf Coast- if anything, it will be more like home for them -- definitely not AS cold as the North Pole, but cool.

It will be chilly by Christmas morning but we do not have snow in the forecast. Temperatures will be in the 30s and 40s by daybreak. North of highway 84 may see temperatures in the 20s.

Christmas Day will be gorgeous! Plenty of sunshine with temperatures in the low to mid-50s. It will be even colder Christmas night with most areas in the 30s by Tuesday morning.

We will be tracking Santa Claus all Christmas Eve and you can, too! Check out NORAD here.

From the First Warning Channel 3 Weather Center, wishing you and your family a safe and happy holiday season!
