Today in New York Weather History: June 5



Today's high of 81° was the first in the 80s (or warmer) since the 90-degree high on 4/20, nearly seven weeks ago.


Today and the previous two days were unusually chilly, with periods of light drizzle, fog and clouds, and northeasterly winds.  The highs and lows for the three days were: 53°/50° on June 3; 52°/49° on June 4; and 55°/47° today.  Whereas the low temperature during these days averaged ten degrees below average (comparable to late April), the average high of 53° was twenty-three degrees below average (comparable to late March).


The50s 1992

2.80" of rain fell today, a record for the date.  Most fell during the afternoon and early evening, with the greatest amount pouring down between 6-7 PM, when 0.60" fell.




This morning's low was a sultry 76°, sixteen degrees above average, and what a typical high should be for the date.  The afternoon high hit 88°.


Today's high/low of 64°/51° was ten degrees cooler than average, just the third time this year that the daily mean temperature was this much below average (the last time it happened was on Jan. 15).  And the AM low was the chilliest in June in three years.
