With temperatures soaring into the low 60s today in Brooklyn Heights—when the mean average is typically 48 degrees F—local restaurants were quick to indulge midday foodies in outdoor seating along Montague Street. It appears that after the gentle winter of 2011/2012, Spring may truly be arriving ahead of its calendar date of Tuesday, March 20. Oh, joy!
The week ahead is looking even more temperate: Tuesday’s expected high is 71 degrees and Wednesday’s is 66, before dipping into the high 50s until next Monday, when we again return to the glorious 60s.
The historic high for March 12 in Brooklyn was set waaaay back in 1890, when it reached 73 degrees. Two years before, the record low was set, at 8 degrees F.
