The record warmth in northern New England may not be over.

The National Weather Service says the temperature is projected to climb to a record-high 65 degrees on Wednesday in Concord, New Hampshire. In Portland, Maine, the temperature is projected to climb to 57 degrees, just 1 degree shy of the daily record.

The warm continues from last week.

Concord set three records in a row from Thursday through Saturday. The period included the highest temperature ever recorded in Concord in February: 69 degrees.

Tom Hawley from the National Weather Service in Maine said the mid-winter cold returns Friday, just in time for the weekend.
