If I remember correctly, about 10 days after the April 82 Blizzard, there was ANOTHER heavy snow warning for NY City, but that one turned out to be a non-event, no snow at all. At the time I used to write a monthly column for a hobby newsletter and I recall writing something like "as I type this we are under a heavy snow warning".

How much did it rain on April 6, 2001? I recall it was a VERY rainy Friday, and the day our 6th grade got let out for Spring Break. Our plane to Palm Beach that evening was cancelled due to the inclement weather and we left the next day.


Hi John, there wasn't much in the way of rain in Central Park, which picked up 0.25" between 10AM and 5PM. The three area airports reported comparable amounts. Perhaps the cancellation was due to bad weather at your destination?


2019 - the low of 39° was the month's, and season's, last day in the thirties. only seven other Aprils have had no readings in the thirties in the final twenty-four days of the month. including this year, six of them have occurred since 1987.

Is there a way to find out the weather condition in New York City in April 1887?



Hi Peggy, that April was quite chilly and ranks as the fifth coldest on record. Coldest reading was 24 degrees, warmest was 79. There were snowfalls of two inches on April 1-2 and three inches on April 18.
