See your Christmas holiday forecasts around the country

Your weather forecast this Christmas holiday will be different depending on where you're planning to celebrate it. The forecast is a mixed bag -- it will be damp and cool on the West Coast, while New York will see record highs.

Here's a closer look from meteorologists around the nation:

New York City

New York City is expecting record warmth for Christmas and Christmas Eve. It will reach 74 degrees Thursday and will be in the 50s, rising to 66 degrees on Christmas Day.

Los Angeles

Christmas Day will likely start with some showers for Southern California. The wet weather is expected to clear before midday, making way for a sunny, crisp and refreshing afternoon with highs in the low 60s for most areas.


It's looking dry with above-average temperatures on Christmas for Chicago. It will be partly sunny with no snow in sight.


After record warmth on Christmas Eve, temperatures will remain well above normal for Christmas Day in Philadelphia.

San Francisco

It will be merry and bright in the San Francisco Bay Area. Christmas Day will start out chilly under mainly clear skies. It will remain sunny all day then turn crisp under starry skies by evening.


This will be one of the warmest Christmas Days on record in Houston. With high temperatures near 80 and warm, muggy southerly winds, it will feel more like Spring Break than Christmas.


Lingering, moist air will flow over the Carolinas and will lead to plenty of clouds and spotty showers on Christmas Eve and a stray shower or two for Christmas Day. More importantly, near-record to record-high temperatures are expected Wednesday through Sunday. This could end up being the warmest Christmas holiday period on record.


A cold storm system will move through Central California on Christmas Eve and could deliver snow to elevations as low as 2,000 feet. It will clear up through Christmas Day in the Central Valley before mostly sunny skies and cold temperatures on Saturday. A few more clouds Sunday as a weak storm system moves into Northern California.
