It’s Going to Be a Warm Christmas in Philadelphia

Temperatures are forecast to be in the 60s on Christmas Eve and the 50s on Christmas. It will almost feel like Christmas in July!

It’s not going to feel very Christmas-y in Philadelphia on Christmas, weather-wise.

But what’s wrong with that? It’s actually kind of exciting you’ll be able to enjoy the holiday without also dealing with freezing temperatures. So what if there isn’t any snow? It should be in the 50s, at least. And the 60s on Christmas Eve! Even I might go outside!

Last week, we told you about forecasters’ predictions of precipitation on Christmas Eve. We immediately dashed your hopes for a White Christmas by telling you it’d be too warm to snow. But who knew it’d be this warm?

It’s in the low 50s right now. The forecast calls for two more days of wet weather, with a high in the low 60s on Christmas Eve tomorrow and the low 50s on Christmas Day.

Phillywx tells us holiday temperatures this warm last happened in 2008, when it was in the 60s on both Christmas and Christmas Eve.

It’s still going to be rainy and windy on Christmas Eve, so the weather should still be annoying. But at least you can take off that ugly Christmas sweater this year — you won’t need it.
