RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - Unseasonably warm weather could break records across North Carolina on Christmas Eve.

Lauren Visin of the National Weather Service says Charlotte is forecast to have a high of 75 on Thursday, four degrees above the record set in 1982.

To the east, even older records could fall.

National Weather Service meteorologist Shawna Cokley says Raleigh’s predicted high of 78 and Fayetteville’s predicted high of 80 would be a couple of degrees above records set in 1931. Greensboro also could break a record set in 1964 if it gets above 71.

As many as three inches of rain has fallen on parts of the state in the past 48 hours, and more showers are expected through Christmas Day.

The National Weather Service’s Raleigh office tweeted: “Raindrops keep fallin’ on my sled.”
