Today in New York Weather History: April 24



0.5" of snow accumulated, the second latest date on record, following 4/25 in 1875 (when three inches fell).  Despite the snow, the temperature got no lower than 34° (similar to 4/25/75). 


This was the second cold day in a row, with temperatures that were more typical of the first week of March.  Today's high/low of 44°/31° followed yesterday's 42°/32°.  Both morning lows were records (which still stand).  These were the coldest days of the month.

The 0.03" of rain that fell today, following yesterday's 0.82", duplicated the rainfall of 4/19 (0.82") and 4/20 (0.03").


After soaring to 87° in the early afternoon (the warmest reading of the month), a cold front moved through, and by midnight the temperature had fallen to 52°.  The colder air was made even chiller by winds gusting between 30-40 mph.  This was the third day in a row with 80-degree temperatures, and today's high was the warmest in more than eight months (since Aug. 9).  It was also the warmest reading in April in ten years.




With a high of 80° (sixteen degrees above average), this was the warmest Easter Sunday since 1976 (when the high was a sizzling 96!).  However, showers between 6-9 PM put somewhat of a damper on the day.  The 0.50" of rain that fell was the most on Easter Sunday since 1996.

this December (2021) is the ten year anniversary of when you published the very first post in the blog. what plans do you have in celebrating the blog's ten year anniversary? maybe you can publish a post about all of the weather events that have happened in these ten years that you're most proud of.


Wow, those ten years have flown by. Right now, I haven't thought about doing anything special to commemorate the anniversary - but thanks for pointing it out!
