Local high temperature records were broken this week but will be cooling off as soon as tomorrow.

Syracuse in late September, a once picturesque fall setting, has recently experienced a heatwave with temperatures that have not been seen in over a century.

“I definitely wasn’t expecting it coming into Syracuse," forensic science freshman Kyla Reitzel. "I also don’t like how we don’t have AC."

Other students have stronger feelings on the unseasonably warm weather.

While Hurricane Irene didn’t affect Central New York as badly as cities on the eastern seaboard, several Syracuse University students who planned on moving in this weekend had a lot of trouble traveling to campus.

The storm touched down in North Carolina on Saturday and slammed into New Jersey and New York today, intimidating authorities into shutting down public transit and throughways in the tri-state area and prompting flight delays nationwide.
