Bellingham broke a temperature record that stood for more than 50 years on Monday, the fourth straight day of mostly sunny days and spring-like weather.

A high of 66 degrees shortly before 2 p.m. broke the record of 64 set March 12, 1965, according to National Weather Service records.

Normal high temperature for early March is 51 degrees, and – after a chilly February – temperatures have been above normal for the past several days.
