Less than a week after tying record lows, the temperature in the Atlantic City area reached a record high Wednesday, breaking a 91-year-old record for the date.

Temperatures hit 89 degrees Wednesday, breaking the record of 85 set April 10, 1922, according to National Weather Service records kept for 140 years.

Tuesday’s high was 85 at Atlantic City International Airport, tying the record for that day set in 1959.

The summer-like weather comes less than a week after the Weather Service recorded a low of 24 degrees at Atlantic City International Airport in Egg Harbor Township on April 4, tying the 1959 record low. April 3 had a low of 23 degrees, tying the recorded all-time low set in 1964.

Thursday’s forecast brings a return to milder temperatures, with cloudy weather and a slight chance of rain. Highs are expected to be in the upper 50s.
