NEW YORK (PIX11) — If it felt unseasonably warm Wednesday, that’s because it was; there were multiple broken temperature records to prove it.
Record highs were set at LaGuardia, Newark and John F. Kennedy airports Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service. A record was also broken in Islip. The highest temperature was recorded in Newark, at 70 degrees — that breaks an old record of 68 set in 1985.
The previous record set at LaGuardia was also in 1985; that record was broken Wednesday, at 68 degrees. Record temperatures of 69 degrees and 68 degrees were set at JFK Airport and Islip, respectively. Their previous records were set in 1990 and 2012.
