Thanks for this analysis, it certainly was a month to remember. 2nd coldest in all but the oldest New Yorkers lifetimes.


I'm still somewhat stunned by how cold this month was. Midway through it I figured it would come in with an average temperature around 26.0 degrees. I never thought there would be no thaw. Tomorrow I'll be issuing a review of the winter.

There is a website called NOWdata where one can get daily info for a weather station going way back. I went on there and I think I can "fill in the gaps" for your "NA"s for warmest temperature of the month:

Feb 1885 - 46

Jan 1888 - 54

Jan 1893 - 52

Jan 1875 - 40 (I think this is the lowest "maximum temp" of any month.

Here's the website: https://w2.weather.gov/climate/xmacis.php?wfo=okx


Thank you Harry. Last year I discovered this site but haven't had a chance to fill in all of the observations from my posts that can be enhanced by having these data from the 19th century, so thanks for adding these temperatures.
