Records Smashed on East Coast’s Warmest Ever Christmas Eve
Air flowing up the East Coast straight from the deep tropics is obliterating warm weather records at scores of weather stations.
Temperatures are expected to reach at least 70 degrees from Florida to New England, covering more than 1,200 miles. Amazingly, a reporting station in southern Quebec southwest of Montreal hit 70 degrees at 10 a.m. this morning. Bennington, Vt. hit 70 at 11 a.m.
In many places, forecast highs are 30 to 40 degrees warmer than normal – with temperatures more characteristic of May than December.
