west, but this is radar and satellite, where's the snow in it's not around. as we go through the night tonight, temperatures in the 20s across much of the area, but kind of leveling off as you see, middle of the night, not much colder than it is right now, where the atmosphere is trying to warm up so significantly, it won't allow the radiational cooling to come in, as we say, plus there are clouds that are going to be coming in, during the day tomorrow, temperatures actually getting into the 40s across most of the area, even quakertown and exton getting into the 40s as we go through the day tomorrow. for the eagles game, it's pretty decent weather for december, we're not expecting any kind of precipitation. temperatures dropping into the 30s, little bit of a breeze making it feel cooler, but it's december and it's at night.
last year, in december, around christmas week, it was exceptional. we had a record high in the 70s on the 23rd. this is the forecast for this year, the 24th, we had 71 for a record. last year 68 for a record christmas day, calling for 54 degrees. so it is going to be above average for the temperatures, but it's not going to be anywhere near like last christmas. now you can see christmas eve, i expect some showers in the morning, but that will be gone by afternoon and christmas eve is dry, temperatures lehigh valley, dropping into the upper 30s, and it's just not that chilly for this time of the year. and christmas day itself, starting off in the 30s, 35 in p.a. suburbs, and as we go through the afternoon, we have got several places getting into the 50s and that is definitely above average for this time of the year.
so we have that gradual warmup. a big change between today and tomorrow, then we're kind of leveling off a little bit. the best chance of any kind of showers the next five days will be saturday morning. we're fine for christmas eve, christmas day, no rain, and then into next week, we're into the mid 50s again for much of the week, beginning and the end of the week, that's about 10 degrees above average and that mild trend continues until the end of the year. and we'll be right back. coming up in sports, lane johnson had some candid comments when he returned to the eagles following a 10-game suspension. why he's taking the blame for the phillies struggles as of late.
