1941 and 2017 are the only two years with four or more eighty degree days in both April and October. April 1941 had five while both Octobers and April 2017 had four. annually speaking, 2017 had fifteen fewer such days than 1941 (83 vs 98).


2017 became the second warmest April on record, behind 2010 (but 2017 had the warmest average low temp of any April) and 2017 also featured the warmest October on record (breaking a two-way tie from 1947 and 2007 by half a degree).


Interesting that the thirteen year streak of 80° days in April (2001-2013) coincided with Michael Bloomberg's time in office as Mayor of the City of New York. perhaps mother nature's intention was that if Bloomberg's time as Mayor ends, the streak ends too.
