Mild temperatures expected

December 28, 2004


Get a new bike, skateboard or pogo stick for Christmas? You'll have great weather to use them outdoors -- it will be fairly warm for the next few days.

"It's hard to beat out there, especially for the last week in 2004," said Matt Sayers, 6News meteorologist. "It's going to be mid- to upper-50s, close to 60."

By 7:45 a.m. today, the temperature was already 41, which is above the normal high for this date of 40. This morning's winds were 10 mph, making the windchill 35 degrees.

By noon, the temperature is expected to be 52, with the high topping out at 59 by late afternoon under sunny skies, he said. Winds will be strong from the southwest, at 10-15 mph, gusting to 20 mph, he said.

Temperatures will drop overnight to a low of 34 by Wednesday morning. Wednesday will be another mild day, with the afternoon high again reaching 59, with southerly winds 5-12 mph.

There is a possibility of some rain Wednesday night or early Thursday morning as an upper-level low moves into the area from the southwest, Sayers said.

"We're talking a 20- to 30-percent chance," he said.

But more warm weather is expected Thursday under partly cloudy skies. Thursday's morning's low will be 49, with the high reaching 62 by Thursday afternoon.
