December's weather was a paradox.

The high for the month of 86 on Dec. 3 was 20 degrees above the normal high for the month, but the average daily temperature was about two degrees lower than the normal average.

The average low was also colder than the normal average low.

The month's low of 30 wasn't reached until Christmas Eve - a 56 degree difference from the high near the first of the month.
