Any hopes of a white Christmas that the weekend chill brought will be dashed in the eastern United States, with this Christmas Eve shaping up to be the warmest on record in many communities.
Accuweather - According to AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Tom Kines, "On
Christmas Eve, parts of the mid-Atlantic and New England could be just
as warm as they were on the Fourth of July." Record high temperatures, including some record warm minimum temperatures, are likely to be set from Florida to Maine. New York City already racked their Christmas Eve record at 1:00 a.m.,
surpassing the old record of 63 degrees at a balmy 67. Temperatures for
the afternoon will reach the middle 70s.
