Another day, another high-low weather record for Buffalo.

For the second straight day, Buffalo recorded a record high for its low temperature, the National Weather Service announced.

Wednesday's low of 71 tied the warmest low temperature recorded in Buffalo on Aug. 29; it was also 71 in 1973. Tuesday's low of 75 also tied the warmest low temperature in Buffalo on Aug. 28.
