For the third time in less than a week, Atlantic has broken the record for a High temperature. We topped out at 78-degrees this (Friday) afternoon, which beat the old record of 77 set on March 16th in 1966 and 2003.

Wednesday’s high of 78 broke the record of 72 set in 1908, and on Tuesday, our high of 79 in Atlantic broke a record set in 2007. The National Weather Service says near record highs across the area are possible again on Saturday. Here in Atlantic, we look for a high near 80.
