Temperatures rise to uncommon levels
Intense heat continues to bake the Western New York region.
For the second day in a row, a new record high temperature was reached.

The record high for Sunday is 93 degrees set in 1947, though temperatures are forecast to be more temperate.
Blustery winds overnight on Saturday also caused a number of downed tree limbs.
There have been a few scattered power outages reported, though the number of homes affected are minimal.
