Yes, we hit 80 degrees in both Greenville and New Bern on December 25th in 2015. That December was the warmest December on record with an average temperature of 58 degrees. (That is the average of high and low together) Our 30 year average high in December is around 57 with an average low of 34. Stay tuned to WITN as we forecast for Christmas 2021. - Phillip Williams
