Syracuse and CNY had its first heat wave in about 2 years! Thanks to highs in the low 90s Saturday through Tuesday, it marks the first time since June 30th through July 2nd of 2018 that we’ve felt a heat wave in Syracuse!
The definition of a heat wave in CNY is three consecutive 90+ degree days.
After Monday’s high of 90+° that makes it five 90+ degree days so far in 2020, and 4 in June! We average about 9 days of 90+° a year so we about halfway there already and summer just officially began Saturday evening!
We actually made it 4 consecutive 90+ degree days when it hit 91° on Tuesday. That’s the first time we’ve had 4 consecutive 90°+ days in nearly 5 years!
There will be no 5th day since we are only forecasting a high of 80° Wednesday.
