When your opening up presents this morning, temperatures are going to continue to stay cold in the 20s. Temperatures will warm up above freezing this afternoon with highs reaching in the upper 30s. This will be coldest Christmas since 1999, our high temperature that day was 38 degrees. Sunshine continues for Christmas day as well.


If you’re not a fan of the cold temperatures, I have good news for you. Temperatures are going to be warming back up this week. Temperatures are going warm up in the mid to upper 40s for the first half of the work week. However, by New Years weekend, we’ll be in the upper 60s and possible 70s in parts of the Pee Dee.
