BUFFALO, NY: — Buffalo is on the way to break a record that has stood in the books for 80 years! It's the kind of weather event that occurs literally once in a lifetime. The streak of 60s & 70s that started this week could end up making this the longest run of 64F+ days ever felt in November and essentially the warmest stretch of weather in Buffalo history for the month.
Officially Buffalo is off to a great start recording 69F, 67F, 64F, 65F & 71F from Wednesday - Sunday of this week bringing the total to 5 in a row... but how many does Buffalo need to break the record? That number stands at 7.
Seems like a long way to go, but with a pair of 70 degree days to start the work week it'll be within striking distance.
So, that would bring Buffalo up to 7 in a row and sets the stage for a shot at breaking the streak as well as setting a few more records along the way !
So if you've made it this far into a statistical weather story I'm sure you're wondering what's the most 70 degree days Buffalo has ever had in November... The answer is 4, also set back in 1938. It looks like Buffalo will get to 70 three times during this stretch coming up short of tying the record this week.
Buffalo has a great shot at actually smashing the 1938 60s streak if the warm air holds on into Wednesday of next week... either way WNYers will enjoy one of the finest fall weeks ever felt since record keeping began back in the 1800s... ENJOY!
