Wednesday morning the temperatures were in the 20's and there was a trace of snow.
Saturday morning it was 60 degrees with the highs over the next 3 days to be in the 70's.
Christmas of 1989 we had a foot and a half of snow.
Other Christmas Days its been so warm that I was outside in shorts and no shirt.
As the saying goes, If you don't like the weather..................

I do.

2012 59 degrees: Weather History for Beaufort, North Carolina | Weather Underground

2011 61 degrees: Weather History for Beaufort, North Carolina | Weather Underground

2009 68 degrees:
Weather History for Beaufort, North Carolina | Weather Underground

2008 64 degrees: Weather History for Beaufort, North Carolina | Weather Underground

2006 68 degrees: Weather History for Beaufort, North Carolina | Weather Underground

2005 62 degrees: Weather History for Beaufort, North Carolina | Weather Underground


And this does not even factor in the heat index/real feel. Take today for instance. It was the low to mid 60's before noon with a real feel in the 70s. It all depends on your tolerance, though. I saw people with knee length dresses and shorts and t shirts in the same group of people with long sleeve Ts and jeans today.

Edit: Also there is a distinction to be made from ENC and coastal NC, as the areas directly on the coast tend to be warmer than the interior of the state in the winter, and cooler in the summer.

I don't consider maximum daily highs of 58, 61, 62, and 64 degrees to be shirt's off kind of weather. Then again, there are people who jump naked into freezing water in Canada for fun so I guess it's all about perception.

I do. It was in the 70s in January just 5 years or so ago when I took my kids to a birthday party. They were all outside jumping on the trampoline in short sleeves and barefooted.

I remember many Christmas days as a kid in Fayetteville when it was t-shirt weather for sure. The record temp for Christmas day in Greenville, NC is 77 in 1964. It was 59 in Morehead City last Christmas and the record there is 74 in 1974. Weather Forecast & Reports - Long Range & Local | Wunderground | Weather Underground is a great site for looking all this info up. The record for Christmas Day in Fayetteville in 79(!) in 1932.

My first of seven years in Iowa, low 50s were shirts off, high 30s were car wash in the driveway. It's all what you are used to AND how much you want/ need warm weather!

Yesterday (Sunday) was a great example of the radical difference the weather can be between the coast and just a few miles inland. Leaving Morehead it was all nice, warm and sunny but by the time I hit Newport it was a wall of fog. It stayed that way all the way to New Bern onto my destination in Pamlico County.
