Enjoy the warmth — it’s about to vanish.

Northern New England experienced record and near-record temperatures on Wednesday.

The National Weather Service says in Concord, New Hampshire, and in Portland, Maine, the all-time record high temperature for the month of February has been broken. It reached 72 in Concord and 64 in Portland before 3 p.m.

In Burlington, Vermont, it was 61 on Wednesday morning, already breaking the record for the date. But there were flood warnings issued for Vermont rivers, including the Lamoille, the Missisiquoi and the Winooski.

Typical winter weather is returning Thursday, with highs in the 30s and a chance of light snow or rain.
