TRENTON, N.J. (AP) - Philadelphia, New York and Atlantic City, N.J., are among the major Northeast cities that continue to break temperature records during a brief December heat wave.

The National Weather Service says New York hit 71 degrees on Sunday. That tops the previous mark of 63 degrees set in 1998.

Newark, N.J., reached 70 degrees and bested the previous high of 65 degrees set in 1998.

Atlantic City reached 68 degrees on Sunday. That broke the previous mark of 65 degrees set in 1998.

Philadelphia and Wilmington, Del., both reached 67 degrees. That broke Philadelphia's record of 64 degrees set in 1998 and bested Wilmington's previous high of 64 degrees set in 1984 and 1998.

Several major Northeast cities also broke records on Saturday, when the temperatures reached into the high 60s.
