(NEW YORK) — It’s beginning to look a lot not like Christmas in parts of the U.S.
From Illinois to Maine, states are seeing temperatures out of season for December with highs between 15 and 30 degrees above average.
According to the National Weather Service’s Weather Prediction Center, the high temperatures may extend past the weekend.
“The pattern probably stays the same at least for the next five to seven days,” said meteorologist Jim Hayes from the NWS. “We’re still looking at temperatures above normal at least into the middle of next week.”
The warm weather comes during a landmark climate decision in Paris approved by nearly 200 nationals involved in the COP21 conference in Paris.
