Hi Rob:
I read your weather blog and enjoy it, as I share your interest in NYC weather history and obscure, and not so obscure, weather trivia. Not to be picky, and I'm sure it was just an unfortunate typo, but Easter Sunday 1957 fell on April 21st not the 24th, as posted -- a fact which has probably already been pointed out to you.
In any event, thanks for all your info. As a native New Yorker who recalls a cooler overall pattern which existed in the 1960s, and was particularly marked by a series of brisk, refreshing autumns -- as opposed to the extended summers which now prevail -- I hope not solely for reasons of aesthetic preference but for the good of humankind that global warming/climate change can be reversed (without, of course bringing on another ice age).


Thanks for your message. It turns out that you were the first to bring this error to my attention - thanks very much for pointing it out (the temperature information, however, does reflect the correct date).

The 1970 Easter snowstorm was memorable in my family as my sister was born 8 days earlier and due to some minor complications my mother and her had stayed in the hospital and this was the day they were released, providing a memorable ride home.....
