Record-tying Saturday; Second Warmest March

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

We made it to 81 in Cincinnati Friday, 17 degrees above normal for this time of year. We were just 3 degrees shy of tying the record high of 84. It was our first day in the 80s since November 2, 2016. To put things in perspective, a high of 81 is normal for June 9th.
 
It's going to be even warmer Saturday. We're forecasting a high of 84 and if we get there, we'll tie the record high for this date. We've previously hit 84 on April 15th in 2010 and 1976.
 
Keeping with the warmer than usual trend, just today NASA released its summary of global temperatures for last month. March 2017 was determined to be the second warmest March on record globally. Only March 2016 was warmer. When you compare monthly temperatures to the mean monthly temperatures from 1951-1980, there’s a clear trend of warming since official global temperature records began in 1880. NASA’s temperature analysis looks at 6,300 weather stations across the planet as well ship and buoy thermometers to measure sea surface temperatures.
