SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV)-
When Syracuse reached 80 degrees just before 2:30 Thursday afternoon it made it not only the warmest day of the week or month, it’s the warmest day of the year, and warmest day since October 23rd, 2020!
For perspective, our average high doesn’t reach 80 degrees until June 23rd!
Last year, it wasn’t until May 15th that we hit 80 degrees. Also that month, we had snow on Mother’s Day and a record high of 93 the day after Memorial Day.
The record high for Thursday is 84° set back in 2010.
Saturday is looking at least just as warm! The record high we’re watching for that day is 82, set all the way back in 1945. Beyond Saturday, we’re done with the 80 degree weather for a little while.
