Cloudy Wednesday as mild temps continue

Weather

NEW YORK — New Yorkers were treated to another unseasonably mild day on Wednesday as afternoon temperatures topped-out in the low and mid 50s across the five boroughs. We saw some sunshine this morning as well, but clouds took control of the skies later in the day. It was the sixth day in a row in which afternoon highs reached above normal levels.

For those of you hoping for the mild temperatures to stick around, we have some great news for you. Not only will temperatures remain on the mild side for Thursday and Friday, we could be looking at record-tying warmth once again. Thanks to a push of milder air ahead of another storm system, temperatures are expected to warm into the low 60s. Temperatures like that are rare in the winter months, but when they do show up, they tend to test the record books.

Central Park’s record-high temperature for Thursday is 63 degrees, a record which has been standing since 1971. And Friday’s record-high is 62 degrees, set in 2000.

As we move into the weekend, we will get a winter reality check as a storm system makes its way through on Saturday. We won’t see any of the white stuff with this storm, but it will give us a good dose of rain and send temperatures tumbling back to seasonable levels. Afternoon highs this weekend are not expected to get out of the 40s, and you can expect more of the same early next week.
