Today in New York Weather History: June 8



Two days after the high reached 87°, today was rainy (0.57") and chilly, with a high of just 56°,  twenty-one degrees below average.  This was the third year in a row in which the first week of June featured very cool readings.


0.51" of rain fell during lunchtime (1-2:00 PM).  This followed a torrential downpour of 0.60" yesterday morning between 5-6:00.




During an afternoon thunderstorm, 0.41" of rain fell in just five minutes (3:03-3:08 PM).  Overall, 0.77" fell during the entirety of the storm (2:19-3:19 PM).


Today's high was 93°, the first reading in the 90s this year (one day earlier than last year's first 90).


The day was cool (high of 66°) and damp.  The 0.13" of rain that fell between 11 AM-3 PM was the first rain on this date since 1995 (when just 0.01" fell).  


It was a hot day, with a high/low of 93°/74°, fifteen degrees above average.  This was the second day of a four-day heat wave between June 7-10 that saw afternoon highs of: 94°-93°-96°-96°.




The 33-hour deluge from tropical storm Andrea ended before daybreak.  In total, 4.77" of rain fell (0.43" this morning), making this the second biggest June rainstorm on record.  Since May 8, 14.49" of rain fell in Central Park, which was ten inches greater than what the normal amount would be. 




Strong storms moved through during lunchtime, and by the time the rain was over, at around 2:30 (0.42" was measured), the temperature had fallen to 52° - the chilliest reading in two-and-a-half weeks (typical mid-afternoon temperature this time of the year is 77°).  However, by early evening the temperature, although still cool, had recovered to 60°.
