BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — Once again long range computer models are forecasting temperatures to be well-above normal for Buffalo and Western New York.

As of July 20th the average temperature recorded at the Buffalo National Weather Service Office, for the month of July, is 78.5 degrees.

That puts the month 7.7 degrees above normal and on pace to be the warmest July on record.

The current record is 76.2 degrees set nearly 100 years ago in 1921.

Earlier this month we had a record eight consecutive days with temperatures at or above 90 degrees.

Our weather pattern has remained fairly consistent this summer and it does not look like things will change soon.
