Delivering Record Christmas Week Warmth

Who exactly was it that asked Santa for record breaking Christmas week warmth?  Long gone have been the hopes for a white Christmas.  Onward to record highs on Wednesday of this week with temperatures reaching into the low 60s!  That's an astounding 25 to 30 degrees above average.  In fact, each day through Christmas day will be well above average.

The Set Up: Record Warmth Christmas Week

I'm nearly certain this December will be the warmest in over 100 years...and could very well rival one of the warmest December's on record.  

Warmest December's:  

2015** -- 41.2°
1889 -- 41.1°
1887 -- 40.3°
1881 -- 39.4°
1923 -- 38.8°
1931 -- 38.1°

**Thru the first 20 days

December Summary To Date
In addition, this December is very likely to end with no measurable snowfall for only the 4th time in Toledo's recorded history!
