ALBANY -- The new all-time record-high February temperature set Thursday lasted just a day.

The National Weather Service reported that Albany International Airport reached a temperature of 71 degrees at 1:30 p.m. Friday, marking the second day in a row that a February temperature record was broken.

Thursday's record was 69 degrees, which broke a 68-degree temperature record that had stood since Feb. 22, 1997.

The heat is expected to lessen Saturday afternoon, when a cold front comes in with potentially heavy rains, gusty winds and even the risk of a thunderstorm or two.
