Unseasonably warm temperatures on way to Valley

The Fresno BeeDecember 22, 2013 

Following hard freezes this month that came much earlier than usual, temperatures in the central San Joaquin Valley are expected to be unusually warm this week.

According to the National Weather Service in Hanford, temperatures will slowly climb.

Meteorologist Jim Anderson said that temperatures are expected to be in the low 30s the next couple of nights, but to expect the overnight low to remain in the low 40s by Christmas morning.

He said residents can expect clear, sunny skies and a high temperature in the mid-60s on Christmas Day.

Normally the high temperature for Fresno this time of year is around 53, Anderson said.

Despite the rise in temperature, Anderson said there is no expected bad air quality over the next few weeks. Soot pollution and other debris last week caused air-related health problems.
