NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — Sorry snow lovers, this Christmas is looking warm and not white across the Mid-State!

After a cloudy and mild weekend, we will see a warming trend as we inch closer towards Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Average high for late December in Nashville is 48 degrees, however temperatures will be 10-15 degrees warmer than average by the middle of the week.

Clouds will be decreasing Monday, leading to plenty of sunshine and highs in the low 60s on Christmas Eve. We will be even warmer on Christmas Day with highs making it to the mid 60s and a party cloudy sky.

While this will be warm, it won't break a record. In Nashville, our three warmest Christmas' were in the 70s.

The No. 1 spot was only a few years ago in 2016 when we hit 76 on Christmas Day! Even though the warmth is not record breaking, it's safe to say Santa won't need his heavy red coat when he makes his way to Tennessee this week.
