Today in New York Weather History: September 27



This was the 21st day in a row with no rain.  (The other nine days of the month had rain on three days, which amounted to 1.91".)


Although it amounted to just 0.02", the rain that fell shortly before daybreak made this the ninth day in a row in which some rain fell.  (The first day of this streak also received 0.02").  In total, 8.95" of rain fell, most of it coming during four days in a row (Sept. 23-26) that each had more than an inch of rain. 


Hurricane Gloria made landfall on Long Island near the Nassau/Suffolk border, and dumped heavy rain in the City during the morning (3.13", a record for the date), with most falling between 9:30 AM-12:30 PM.  Skies cleared around 1:00, and the rest of the afternoon was beautiful.  The bountiful rain helped put a dent in the year's rainfall deficit.  (To read my first-person account of the storm double click here.)




Today's high of 89°/low of 69° was 15 degrees warmer than a typical day in late September.


1.33" rain fell throughout the day, exceeding the total amount that fell in the previous four weeks.  One year earlier, 1.03" fell on this date.

2005 - today's low of 61° was the month's twenty-fifth day with a low of 60° or warmer, the most in September since 1971 when there were twenty-six. September 2015 would also have twenty-five such lows.
