WEST MICHIGAN — Although the mild temperatures we had this Christmas Day did not set any records, it was certainly one of the warmest Christmas Days in recent memory. The high temperature in Grand Rapids was 55 degrees, some 23 degrees above average and the warmest Christmas we've had in 37 years.
Today's 55 degree high was also the only time since 1982 that we had a Christmas Day with a high temperature of 50 or higher.
Across the rest of West Michigan, high temperatures were also unseasonably warm with the mercury generally making it into the middle to upper 50s.
Temperatures will continue to stay mild through tomorrow as highs are expected to make it into the 50s once again. Although some cooling is expected on Friday behind a cold front, the weekend looks mild as a whole with seasonably colder air not arriving until next week.
