As we ring in the Winter Solstice---which occurs at 5:23 pm EST this year---temperatures have been incredibly mild across the Northeast. Unfortunately, the mild temperatures are associated with plenty of wind and rain
. But you have to take the good with the bad sometimes!
Temperatures rose very quickly ahead of a cold front Friday morning. Many cities tied or set new records even before the noon hour!
Temperatures may continue to climb a couple of degrees higher, so these records may change.
Looking ahead, the mild air will not stick around. Temperatures will return to near-normal levels throughout the Northeast by Christmas.
