NEWARK, N.J. (AP) - This probably wasn’t what the composers of such Christmas classics as “Let It Snow” and “White Christmas” envisioned.

People in the northeastern U.S. are spending the next-to-last weekend before Christmas biking, jogging and dining outside in short sleeves as temperatures hit the 60s and 70s.

Saturday’s temperatures set records all over New Jersey.

Trenton hit a record 68, one degree hotter than the previous record set in 1931. It was a balmy 71 in Atlantic City, also a record.

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly says near-record warmth is expected over the next few days as temperatures will remain in the 60s before falling into the 40s and below by next weekend.
