A Glance Back at New York Weather: April 12

Today in New York Weather History: April 11



This morning's low was 31°, the last low temperature of 32° or colder this winter.  It came just two days after a high of 76°.


Cold as ice


It was a pleasant day for the Yankees' home opener.  Although it was somewhat chillier than average, with afternoon temperatures in the mid-50s, it was milder than the Mets' home opener three days earlier by about ten degrees.


High temperatures in the 61°-65° range occurred today and the previous four days - and all were different: 61° (on 4/7)-64°-63°-62°-65° (today).  All were milder than the average high for this time of the year (upper-50s).


Under clear skies, the temperature rebounded from a morning low of 42° to 68° (clouds moved in later in the afternoon).  This was also the day of the Mets home opener, which was played during the afternoon.  Unfortunately, they fell behind early (8-1 in the 3rd inning) and lost to the Cubs by a score of 9-5.



A sunny day, but quite chilly, with the afternoon temperature only in the upper 40s (ten degrees below average).  The Yankees played their home opener in these brisk conditions.  Although the World Champions took a 1-0 lead into the 9th, they ended up losing to Oakland in 12 innings.


The sixteen days between March 27 and today all had different high temperatures, ranging between 48° and 86°.


Since March 30 (a span of thirteen days), the mean temperature was nine degrees below average, with an average high/low of 46°/34°.  Today was the eighth day in a row with a low temperature in the 30s, the longest such streak this late in the year since one of thirteen days in 1975. 


With a temperature of 68° at game time, this was the mildest Yankees home opener in eleven years.


The temperature jumped to 75°, making this the year's first reading in the 70s (yesterday's high was 58°).  This came 2-1/2 weeks later than the typical first 70, and was the latest date for this occurrence since 2003, when it happened on 4/15.
