Looking Back at New York City Weather: April 28
New York Weather Highlights of 2010

Today in New York Weather History: April 29




April 29 is one of only two calendar dates that has never had a rainfall of an inch or more (the greatest amount was 0.89" in 1909).  The other date is September 9.  (April 30 was on this short list until 2014, when 4.97" fell.) 



Low temperatures ranged from 38° to 40° for the past nine days (the average low in late April is in the mid-40s).  Besides chilly mornings, this period was also rainy, with slightly more than four inches of rain measured.


The day after the year's first reading in the 80s (the high was 80°), today's high of 89° was a record for the date (a record that still stands) - 23 degrees above average.




The day after the high reached 90°, today's temperature fell steadily throughout the day and was in the 50s during the afternoon.  


For the second day in a row the high reached 85°.  And although 4/16 had the warmest reading of the month (87°), today had the warmest mean temperature as the low of 64° was five degrees warmer than 4/16's.

2019 - for the fifth time this month, 0.01" of precipitation fell. this set a new April record and bested a three way tie of four such days in 1885, 1901 and 1980. since 1920, only January 2007 (which had six) has had five or more such days.


Fun fact: april 29, 1974's record high of 89 came exactly 100 years after a record low of 32 on april 29, 1874
