A few of us experienced a small Christmas Miracle Sunday evening, as enough snowflakes were able to lightly accumulate on frozen metal objects during the late night hours on Christmas Eve. Diana Ridley tweeted this snow report from Henagar — minor dusting accumulations were reported throughout DeKalb County.
Skies cleared some overnight, allowing temperatures to plummet into the mid 20s this morning.
We still have a stiff north wind too, which is making it feel much colder. “Feels like” wind chill temperatures will be in the teens through 9AM.
Make sure the kids have their coats, gloves, scarves, and ear muffs before heading outside at any point today! Temperatures will struggle to warm up as more clouds build in from the west for the afternoon ahead. Highs will only reach into the upper 30s to near 40 this Christmas.
That’s quite a difference from the record breaking 77°F Huntsville hit last Christmas. Even though it will be cold out today, this Christmas won’t be another record breaker. The coldest Christmas on record in Huntsville only topped 15°F! Huntsville’s average high on Christmas is 52°F, so we’re just a tad cooler than ‘normal’ this year.
