see the sun coming out across these areas and getting up near 50 degrees. so quite a change and by christmas eve, that means that it's going to be dry. 6:00, 45, midnight, 36 degrees. so temperatures above average for christmas eve and above-average temperatures for christmas day as well. above average early in the morning. lots of sunshine during the day, rising up near 50 degrees by afternoon. but things are going to change later on during the week, new year's eve, looks like it's going to be colder but dry, temperatures into the 20s, and then new year's day, also on the colder side. i'm danny pommells, csn, up next, is doug pederson calling the plays.
