To say New Yorkers have been surprised by the recent, erratic temperatures would be a lie. NYC is accustom to chaotic weather patterns. Yet, every time the weather reaches an unseasonably warm temperature, NYers can’t hide their excitement.
Today, you can simply step outside your door and see the streets filled with people, dogs, and an energy that only spring weather could bring about. According to the National Weather Service, NYC actually set a record high temperature today of 67°F in Central Park. This ties with the previous high set in 1976 for February 17th.
As weather services continue to monitor today’s temperatures, it’s exciting to note that it’s the warmest NYC has been in 3 months, shared Storm Team 4 NY on Twitter.
Earlier today, the same record high of 67°F was set for Newark. This beats the old record also set in 1976 of 66°F.
And though tomorrow were expected to experience more high temperatures, NYC will drop back in the high 30s and low 40s by this weekend.
But for now, make sure to get outside and take advantage of these high temps!
