Yesterday we reached 60F after that torrential rainfall. Last night the wind was crazy fierce, but today things have calmed down. Not as warm right now, but 38F on December 24 is mild.
But look at the Northeast. 71 NYC, 67 in MA, 64 in NH/VT. Unbelievable. Warmer than AZ and SoCa right now.
Quite the contrast with December 24, 1983. Chicago temperature -25 Windchill -82. (IIRC -28 in the NW burbs where I lived and wind chill just about licking -90.
