SYRACUSE, NY (WSYR-TV)- The heat is on into the new week. We had the second straight day of record warmth on Monday, which also made it our first heat wave of the year!

A heat wave in Central New York is defined as three or more consecutive 90° days. Our forecast calls for at least one more 90+° day but we are thinking temperatures should fall short of 90° Tuesday due to more clouds and showers/storms expected.

So far this year, Syracuse has already had six 90° days, they just weren’t consecutive.

DATEHIGH TEMP.
MAY 20, 202192°
MAY 21, 202193°
MAY 26, 202190°
DATE HIGH TEMP.
JUNE 5, 2021 93°
JUNE 6, 202193°** (record was 92° set in 2008)

JUNE 6, 202193°** (record was 92° set in 2008)
JUNE 7, 2021 94** (record tying high originally set in 1999)

The earliest Syracuse has had a heat wave in the calendar year began on May 16 in 1962.

DATEHIGH TEMP.
MAY 16, 196290°
MAY 17, 196290°
MAY 18, 196290°

In 2020, you may remember a lot of 90 degree days, 21 to be exact. Our first heat wave last year began on June 20th.

DATEHIGH TEMP.
JUNE 20, 202091°
JUNE 21, 202090°
JUNE 22, 202092°
JUNE 23, 202091°

The chances are very low of another record high being broken or even tied for the rest of this week after Monday’s record tying high of 94°.
