Expect some 90-degree days this summer, AccuWeather says

There were no 90-degree days in Buffalo in 2014.

This summer will be a different story.

At least that’s what AccuWeather’s Global Weather Center suggested Wednesday in stating that the Northeast will “endure more 90-degree days” during the summer of 2015.

“Warmth from central Canada and the northern Plains will flow into the Northeast this summer, leading to above-normal temperatures and drier conditions for much of the region,” AccuWeather reported.

Long-range forecaster Paul Pastelok said “extreme heat” is not necessarily expected, but “periods of warmer-than-normal temperatures will come and go during the course of the summer” following last year’s cooler-than-normal summer.

The last time it hit 90 degrees in Buffalo was a 92-degree reading on July 16, 2013.

It was on the end of a three-day streak where the thermometers soared to or above 90.
