BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Temperatures across Alabama and the rest of the South are unseasonably warm for Christmas Eve.

In Birmingham, the National Weather Service says the temperature rose to 73 degrees overnight, setting a record high for a low temperature for Dec. 23. The old record, 72 degrees, was set in 1970.

In Barbour County, Alabama, emergency management director David Logan says it feels more like summer than Christmas Eve.

Temperatures were in the mid- to upper 70s along the Gulf Coast.

To the North, record highs already have been recorded early on Christmas Eve in Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse as temperatures top 60 degrees in each city.
