High temperatures Christmas Day barely climbed above freezing.  Take a look at the weather on Christmases past.

 

Did Santa bring you a new winter coat, gloves, and/or mittens?  If so, I'm sure you were able to put it to good use Christmas Day.  The high at Reagan National reached 33 degrees.  That's 11 degrees below average!  And it tied as the coldest Christmas since 2004.

Most locations, in our area, barely made it to the freezing mark yesterday.

Looking at past Christmases, back to 2000, the lowest temperature (at Reagan National) was 28 degrees!  The highest -- nearly 60 degrees -- in 2008.  Thanks to the folks at Sterling's National Weather Service for this data.  Click here for a lot more information on Christmas weather history.
