1974 Weather Highlights for New York
Looking Back at New York Weather: June 16

Today in New York Weather History: June 15


1933 (Thursday)

Less than a week after a record high of 97° (6/9), this morning's low of 48° was half that temperature, and also a record.

1971 (Tuesday)

Showery (0.32" fell) and cool, with a high/low of just 60°/56°.  The high temperature was nineteen degrees below average and more in line with the second week of April.

1974 (Saturday)

High temperatures of today and the previous three days: 79° (today)-78°-77°-76°. 

1983 (Wednesday)

Today's high was 92°, the fourth day in a row with a high in the 90s.

1988 (Wednesday)

For the second day in a row the high reached 96°.

1989 (Thursday)

Overcast skies, AM drizzle, and winds off the ocean resulted in just a three-degree difference between today's high (61°) and low (58°).  The low was five degrees below average, but the high was 19 degrees below the norm.

1994 (Wednesday)

Today's high reached 96°.  This was the first of four days in the next 30 with a high of 96° or hotter.

1998 (Monday)

Today was the fifteenth consecutive day with cooler than average temperatures.  During these days high temperatures ranged between 65° and 73° (average is 78°).  This made the first half of June six degrees cooler than average.

2014 (Sunday)

Today was Father's Day, and if you forgot to buy your Dad a necktie there was no need to fret since the weather was enough of a gift as skies were mostly clear and the afternoon temperature rose to a seasonable 80°.  Today's low of 59° was the third, and last, day with a low in the 50s this month, the fewest since June 1996 (which also had three, all in the first three days of the month). 

2022 (Wednesday)

Today, with a high of 83°, was the third day in a row with a high of 80°+ in Central Park - the first time this year, and the deepest into a year since 2003.  Typically, a streak of this length occurs around May 21-23.  (The first reading of 80°+ this year, on 5/21, was the latest since 1988).
