SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR) –
As of 2 pm Saturday Syracuse reached 90 degrees for the first time in 2022, and peaked at 91 degrees just after 3 in the afternoon.
The average first date of 90 degree weather typically comes around June 5th so we are a couple of weeks ahead of schedule.
Yes, it was a hot and steamy Saturday in Syracuse and CNY but we did not reach record status. The record high for Saturday, May 21 remains 96 degrees set in 1977.
Our first 90 degree day of 2021 came on May 20th, a day earlier than this year.
With the warmth and humidity around Saturday night through the start of Sunday afternoon some additional showers and a few scattered strong thunderstorms are possible. Click here to keep an eye on things on Live Doppler 9.
