It appears that Santa has brought us an early Christmas present with the forecast.

Clear, and mild.

Gerald Cheng is a meteorologist with Environment Canada.

“ As we head into Christmas eve, and Christmas day, temperatures will be holding steady at seasonal levels which should be around minus 9 for this time of year.”

We are in the minus 8 range for Christmas day which is about right for this time of year, but no snow in the forecast through the week.
