Record Breaking Warm Day for November

The weather has been unusually warm for late November here in New York City.   In fact, we set a new daily high temperature record on Monday with a reading of 70°F in Central Park.  That is 21°F above normal.  The old record, set in 1896 and tied in 1990, was 69°F.

The mild conditions continued today as we marked the fifth day in a row with temperatures in the 60°F range.  The local forecast is calling for rain tonight followed by a return to more seasonable temperatures.
