SYRACUSE, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — 80+ degree warmth in October continues and Wednesday afternoon under plenty of sunshine we warmed enough to shatter the record high of 84° set back in 2017 when the temperature reached 89° at 3:28 p.m.!

The 89° recorded just before 3:30 Wednesday afternoon is the warmest temperature ever recorded in October in Syracuse! The previous warmest temperature as 88°, set back October 1, 2019.

Believe it or not, we think our fourth consecutive 80+ degree day on Thursday could be another record-breaker in this summery October stretch! Stay tuned for updates on the record watch on Thursday.
