Episode Narrative A period of record warm temperatures was experienced across central New York from March 17th to the 23rd as the jet stream was pushed farther north than is typical for this time of year and persistent southerly flow developed over an unusually large area of the United States. Both of the climate record stations at Binghamton and Syracuse broke records for the warmest March on record. Both locations were over 12 degrees above normal for the monthly mean temperature. Binghamton saw seven days in a row of record high temperatures, the second longest string on record. Temperatures across central New York reached well into the 70s, with typically warmer valley locations near or just above 80 degrees.
Event Narrative Temperatures across central New York were anomalously warm for the month, with the warmest stretch occurring from the 17th to the 23rd when temperatures reached well into the 70s, with readings as high as the lower 80s in typically warmer valley locations.
