New York melts on hottest Nov 6 since 1948
NEW YORK, United States—New York recorded its hottest November 6 in nearly 70 years Friday, as skaters splashed through puddles on a much-loved ice rink and commuters strolled around in T-shirts.
The thermometer in Central Park reached 74 degrees Fahrenheit (23 Celsius) at 1:37 p.m., matching the previous record set in 1948, according to the National Weather Service.
At LaGuardia Airport, the mercury rose to 75 degrees Fahrenheit, thrashing the previous record of 71 degrees set in 1948.
Skaters at the ice rink in Bryant Park, which opened last Friday at the onset of the fall-winter season, slushed through puddles, slipping and falling as the ice melted.
