With the AccuWeather forecast calling for McMinnville temperatures in the low 70s later this week, it will be one of the warmest Christmas Days on record.The forecast calls for Christmas Eve temperatures in McMinnville of 71 and Christmas Day temperatures of 70 with a chance of rain both days.It’s part of record-breaking warmth being enjoyed by many of the central and eastern states this week, continuing what has already been an unseasonably mild month. Several cities in the east will likely see their warmest Christmas Eve or Christmas Day on record, adding to the more than 2,600 daily record high temperatures that have been tied or broken across the lower 48 the first 20 days of the month.This mild forecast means the prospect for a white Christmas is highly unlikely for most resident east of the Rockies. Cloud cover will result in unbelievably balmy nighttime temperatures for Christmas carolers, party-goers and last-minute shoppers.
