Looking Back at New York City Weather: April 26



Today's high reached 73°, the first 70-degree reading of the year.  This was four weeks later than average and the latest since 1956, when it occurred on 4/28.  No year since has had a later date (thru 2021).




Today's high reached 92°, a record for the date, and twenty-seven degrees above average.  It came just three days after a chilly high of 57°.  This was the second day of a four-day springtime heat wave that saw high temperatures of 88°-92°-84°-90°.  (The typical high in late April is in the mid-60s.)  It would be nearly four months before it got this hot again.
