Spring-Like Conditions Will Linger A Bit Longer
December high temperature records are being set across New York and Pennsylvania. The unusually mild weather may continue for at least a few more days.
A record high of 62 degrees was recorded Sunday, December 13 at the National Weather Service office at the Greater Binghamton Airport in the Town of Maine. The previous record high for December 13 was 56 degrees in 1984.
Monday, December 14 began with another broken record for Binghamton. The temperature at midnight was 57 degrees. The old record for December 14 was 55 in 2006.
The first half of the month has been virtually snow-free. Ted Champney of the National Weather Service said snowfall for the month so far was a trace. The slight amount of recorded snow occurred on December 3.
Champney noted Binghamton recorded no snow for the first fourteen days of December in 1998.
The very mild conditions will change when a cold front moves across the Twin Tiers Monday evening. But high temperatures through Thursday, December 17 will remain somewhat higher than is typical for this time of year.
