The high on April 16, 2011 in Central Park, New York was actually 55 degrees Fahrenheit.


Thanks for catching the error. The correct year is 2012, which I've changed.


This Memorial Day was actually the chilliest since 2003, when the high was 55°. As for the high of 70° on 2/24 you could also add that this was the warmest february day since 1997. as for the high of 26° on 3/15 you could also add that this was the coldest March high temperature since 2009.


Hi William, thanks for pointing out the error in the year - I've corrected it. And thank you for your other observations. Regarding the temperature, 56 degrees is the high reported in the monthly Local Climatological Data report for May 2003 (published by NOAA). It's the source I use for temperatures I cite in my blog.


the dates for this year's first and last 80° readings were identical as 2011 (4/11-10/10). however, 2011 had a dozen more 80° days than this year (95 vs 83). this year had the fewest # of 80° days since 2012 (the hottest year on record) when there were also 83.
