If it seems unseasonably warm for this time of year, you're right. The record high for Utica on May 26 was 88.8 degrees, set in 2016. In Syracuse, the record high on the 26th is 90, set in 2011. Before you start complaining about the heat - the record lows for both Syracuse and Utica was 53 degrees - set in 1930 and 2017, respectively.

The official National Weather Service forecast says we should look for temperatures in the upper 80s. Local forecasters are predicting temps in the 90s today.
