(WKBN) – Two days in a row with record temperatures here in Youngstown, Ohio. This has been a hot month to this point, and the numbers are adding up.

The high of 77° on the 10th this year is the hottest temperature on record this late in the season. In fact, you won’t find a record high this hot until March.

Looking at where we stand so far this month: We just finished a stretch of 70 or greater days here in Youngstown.

In fact, we had six days in a row with 70°+. The 5th and 6th featured record highs.
November 5th = 70° Record High: 77° set in 1949
November 6th = 70° Record High: 74° set in 2008
November 7th = 71° Record High: 73° set in 1938

Consecutive days of 70°+ readings in November are rare. Looking back through history dating as Early as 1930, we have not had more than five days in a row at 70°+. We just finished our 6th! That makes November of 2020 the current leader in consecutive days in a row at 70° or higher – the most on record here in Youngstown. We were close in 2008 with 5 days in a row during the month.
