Today's high/low of 81°/58° was preceded by two days with a high/low of 77°/60°, and would be followed by two days with highs/lows 77°/59° and 77°/60°.
It was a hot and very humid day, with a high/low of 97°/76°. The high was a record and the heat index reached 110° during lunchtime.
Today's high was 92°, the first 90-degree day of the year and the first day of a four-day heat wave.
This morning's low of 47°, a record for the date, was the coolest reading in June in eight years - and there hasn't been a chillier reading since.
Today's high of 96° was the hottest reading of the summer, eighteen degrees above average. It came in the midst of an early summer heat wave which lasted ten days (June 5-14). The average high/low during these days was 91°/73°, twelve degrees hotter than average. Six of the days were in the 90s.
2.55" of rain fell today, with 0.75" of it pouring down between 11 AM-1 PM; another 1.15" fell between 8-11 PM. This was a record amount for the date. Furthermore, this was the sixth day in a row with rain, totaling 4.95".
Twenty of the past twenty-one days had below-average temperatures, resulting in temperatures that were six degrees below average.
Four of the past five days had a low of 57°; the other day had a low of 58°. Also, twenty-eight of the past thirty days were cooler than average.
Today's high was 91°, which would be the hottest reading of the year, and the first of just two 90-degree days all summer (the other would be on Aug. 28). Only four other years had 91° or 90° as their hottest reading: 1884, 1889, 1902 and 1960. A typical New York summer has eighteen 90-degree highs and the hottest temperature is usually around 97°.
Today was a scorcher, with a high/low of 96°/76°, sixteen degrees above average. This was the third day in a row with highs in the 90s, and tomorrow would be the fourth.
In just fifteen minutes time, in the wee hours of the morning, 0.75" of rain thundered down between 2:41-2:56 AM. Rain continued until 8 AM and totaled 1.80".
0.89" of rain fell, beginning early in the afternoon and continuing until a little past midnight, breaking a three-week dry spell in which only 0.11" of rain fell.
The day after a high of 93°, today's high reached a sizzling 95°. Meanwhile, Newark, as usual, out-fried NYC, with highs of 99° and 102°, both which were records.
For the first time this month the high reached 80°, the deepest into the month that the first 80°+ reading occurred since 2003, when it also happened on 6/9. Additionally, this was the first 80-degree reading since the three-day heat wave of 5/17-19 ended.
With a high of 90°, this was the fourth, and last, day of a four-day heat wave. (And the day before the heat wave started, the high reached 89°.) This was the first heat wave of this length in June since 2008. And although that heat wave's average high was significantly hotter (95° vs. 91°), this June's heat wave had low temperatures that were significantly warmer (75° vs 70°). It was also very humid, with dew points largely in the 68°-72° range, producing afternoon heat indices in the mid-90s. With four days in the 90s through 6/9, this was the earliest date for that number of days since 2000, when the fourth reading in the 90s occurred on 6/2 (ironically, that year would have only seven in total).
