And so our Holiday weather is cool, wet and cold

US Current Temperatures MapUSA Today/Doyle Rice, 12/22/15. "No cool Yule: Temps stay toasty for Christmas."

"Forget the Yule Log on Christmas Eve unless you want to break into a sweat in the eastern United States. Record high temperatures could soar into the 70s on Thursday, shattering Christmas Eve records in several cities, including Boston (where the record high is 61), New York City (63), Philadelphia (64), Washington (69), Charlotte (71) and Atlanta (72).

"There is a high probability for record-setting warmth up and down the entire Eastern Seaboard from Florida to Maine," AccuWeather meteorologist Rob Englund said. Highs on Thursday will range from the 50s in Maine to the 70s in the Mid-Atlantic and into the lower 80s in parts of the Southeast.

Christmas Day should be about 10 degrees cooler than on Christmas Eve in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, but high temperatures will still be well above average. The Southeast should stay toasty Christmas Day, with highs in the 70s and 80s."  Read more.
