Autumn leaves were on the ground in New York City, despite summer-like temperatures

NEW YORK—As warm temperatures continue in the eastern United States and FBT staffers spotted many people walking around Midtown simply wearing t-shirts, many people are wondering how long the November heat wave will continue.

By the time the sun set Friday evening, multiple cities had experienced record high temperatures including Baltimore with 79° F (26° C), New York City with 75° F (24° C), and Washington, D.C., with 80° F (27° C). The previous record high on this date in New York City was 74° F (23° C), set in 1948.

Many cities that are accustomed to far colder weather saw morning lows in the 60s (around 15° C) including Buffalo, New York; Burlington, Vermont; and Detroit, Michigan, which was the fourth November morning with a 60° low since 1874.

While many enjoyed al fresco dining and walks in the park in Manhattan, the heat wave also melted Bryant Park ice skating rink.

While temperatures are expected to be lower on Sunday, with highs in the upper 50s (around 13-15° C), warmer weather will Monday with highs in the low 60s (around around 16-17° C) off and on throughout the week.

States in the southeastern part of the country have also been experiencing unprecedented high temperatures. In Florida, numerous cities saw high temperature records broken with highs of 90° F (32° C) and above, including Daytona Beach, Gainesville, Naples and Tampa.

The forecast for the weeks ahead indicates above normal temperatures for the next few weeks and highs in the mid 50s (around 12-13° C) in the first week of December.
