ORLANDO, Fla. — Dreams of a white Christmas are still out of the question, but Central Floridians can plan to bundle up on this year as the forecast calls for the coldest Christmas Day in a quarter of a century.
Channel 9 meteorologist Rusty McCranie said Friday’s forecast calls for a high of only 54.
That means ugly Christmas sweaters will be perfectly acceptable attire for whatever socially distance celebrations you have planned.
McCranie said the chill will settle in even more Saturday morning with lows in the 30s across Central Florida.
“After the coldest Christmas afternoon in a quarter-century, we’ll have to turn our attention to a likely freeze Saturday morning,” he said. “This freeze could impact portions of metro Orlando, with a hard freeze in our northwest areas.”
