Charlotte rarely gets its wish for a white Christmas, but this year will be particularly off the mark.
Temperatures on Christmas Day (Sunday) are expected to be 61 degrees, which is deadly for snowmen and uncomfortable for reindeer.
On the upside, there will be no rush on bread and milk Saturday, and it’s a sure thing kids will be able to take their new toys and bikes outside to play all day on Christmas. (No chance of rain.)
The low will be 46 that night.
As for Christmas Eve, expect a 40 percent chance of showers, mainly before 5 p.m., and a high of 56 degrees.
In fact, it appears temperatures will stay well above freezing all next week, including a high of 67 degrees on Tuesday.
