Another warm weather record falls, but now the temperatures drop

Buffalo made it three straight days of warm-weather records.

But now, bundle up.

Wednesday marked another record day of warm weather for Buffalo as the low of 67 was the highest low recorded for Oct. 10. The previous mark was 65 set in 1879.

Wednesday, which saw a high of 81, marked the third straight day of highs in the 80s for Buffalo. On Monday the high of 82 tied the all-time high. Tuesday saw a record high of 83, breaking a 109-year-old record.

Western New York might want to hold on to these warm-and-fuzzy weather feelings for the rest of this week, when a big drop is expected in temperatures.

The National Weather Service said temperatures will start in the 70s Thursday before plummeting to the 40s Thursday night.

Highs for the next week are expected to be in the low 50s.

"A cold front will move east across the area today with showers and a few scattered thunderstorms," its forecast read. "Much cooler air will pour into the region tonight, with below normal temperatures setting in for an extended period of time from Friday through much of next week."
