Low 80s? Highest I've seen is JFK reaching 78 F. Central Park reached 76 F.

High reached 73 F here today. Broke the record by 2 F.

(from ben86) So does it mean spring started or ended here?

Up in western Massachusetts, it hit 67F and there's still a few patches of snow on the ground.
75F before the daffodils bloom?! That just seems pure wrong to me, as wrong as the photo I saw taken in a park on the English south coast on New Year's Day 2007 which had daffodils in bloom and autumn foliage at the same time. And the soil temperatures must still be really cold, right, so how much heating actually went on I wonder?

There was one week I remember this time of year in 2005 which was as extreme a sudden warm spell as I can remember this early, but the highs here were only 51, 66, 66, 66, 67, 68, 52. 67F with lying snow has presumably never happened here and probably never will, though I once went hiking through 3 feet of solid snow 6000ft in up in Poland with temperatures even that high up around 60F. The earliest we've had 75F anywhere in this country is actually 9th March, though oddly the second-earliest occurrence was as late as March 29th.

It got to 82 here, Newark hit 80, I think Teterboro did too. JFK broke the record of 70 with 79.

Wow I didn't realize it got that warm. Let's hope we don't see this sort of weather again until May.

Cute! A few, not big by any means! We're an hour and a half from Milwaukee, easier to leave from there than flying Appleton or Green Bay to Milwaukee or Chicago!

Of course, if you are the Packers, you just charter your own plane! Air Force One landed here so they have runways to handle big planes, just not enough population to warrant direct flights.

Now aren't you sorry you asked???
