The temperature reached 71°F in New York City yesterday afternoon. That is 24°F above normal. I had to remind myself that it is still, technically, winter.
Overnight, however, a cold front moved through, bringing temperatures back to more seasonable levels. These relatively cool conditions will not last long, though. The forecast is calling for a return to above average temperatures in the mid-60’s by early next week.
The infamous yo-yo temperatures of March seem to be in full swing.
