The next two days will be warm, perhaps record-setting warm, in the Sacramento region.
The all-time high recorded in Sacramento for Dec. 24 occurred in 2005 when the temperature was 66 degrees. The National Weather Service predicts we will get close to that all-time high Tuesday: a maximum of 65 degrees is forecast.
Then, on Christmas day, another chance to tie or break a record. The record high on Dec. 25 was set in 1967 when the mercury reached 64 degrees in Sacramento.
NWS forecasters predict the high will be 63 degrees on Christmas afternoon. The normal high for late December in Sacramento is 53 degrees.
