BUFFALO, N.Y. — A new record high of 92 degrees was set Tuesday afternoon at the Buffalo Airport, and more record heat is possible on Wednesday.
Temperatures will stay in the mid 60s Tuesday night and then quickly climb back into the mid 80s on Wednesday afternoon. The record high for Wednesday is 89 degrees. Record or not, heat index values will be in the 90s inland from the lakes. Take it easy during the next couple of days and try to keep strenuous outdoor activities to the early morning or late evening.
Thursday and Thursday night will be the most humid parts of the week as a cold front gets closer to Western New York. The increased humid will raise the chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms both Thursday and Friday.
That cold front will finally pass through the region late Friday. After that, cooler, much more comfortable air will come in and stick around for a little while.
