SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - High temperature records are tumbling across upstate New York as the early winter warmup continues across the region.

Record highs already have been recorded early on Christmas Eve in Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse as temperatures top 60 degrees in each city. Albany’s 58 degrees Thursday morning broke the previous record of 57 set on Dec. 24, 1941.

The National Weather Service says high temperatures in some upstate areas could climb into the 70s by the end of the day. Temperatures will cool off on Christmas Day but forecasters say temperatures will remain well above normal for this time of year.

The weather service has issued a wind advisory for parts of western New York, where gusts of up to 55 mph are forecast.
