what, by far, has been the coldest winter(s) not to experience a reading of 0° or chillier? and what is more rare to occur in NYC? a sub zero reading or a 100° reading?


The winter of 1892-93, ninth coldest on record, is the coldest not to have any below zero readings. Average temperatures: Dec. (32.2); Jan. (23.7); and Feb. (29.4). The coldest winter of the past 50 years not to have a sub-zero low was the winter of 1969-70: Dec. (33.4); Jan. (25.1); and Feb. (33.0).

There have been slightly more days of 100+ than sub-zero days, 60 vs. 55. However, there's been a much bigger difference between the two since 1980, with there being 16 highs in the triple digits but only four lows that have been below zero.
