WINDSOR LOCKS, Conn. (AP) An unusually warm Christmas Eve has led to a new weather record in Connecticut.
The National Weather Service in Taunton, Massachusetts announced via Twitter on Thursday that temperatures at Bradley International Airport had reached 60 degrees at 12:08 p.m.
That broken the maximum temperature record for the day of 59 degrees at Bradley, set both in 1996 and 1990.
By 1 p.m., Danbury was considered one of the warmest spots in southern New England. Temperatures in the Hat City reached 68 degrees. Danbury joined Boston, Bedford and Norwood, Massachusetts.
The weather service said such high temperatures are more normal for this time of year in Florida.
