this analysis deserves a shout out to July 23, 1906 and August 6, 1908 (both of which had a high/low of 87/80) since they are the only "stuck in the 80s" kind of days.


Regarding this topic and William's comment, I noticed something interesting.

NWS NYC recently updated the climate portion of their website. They are now claiming the warmest low temperature in Central Park is 87 on July 2, 1903; and increduously says it was a high of 91 and a low of 87 that day which would be by far the warmest day with such a narrow temperature range.

I think this is a serious error of some sort but it would be interesting if it were true given that the 1800s and first decade of the 20th century had an unusual number of "stuck in the 70s" days. Also in the vein, what I think is the "real" record high low temp of 84 occurred TWICE in 1908 (but never before and not again until 1995 and 2011) so maybe that 87 in 1903 is reality but I think it would've been noted well before now.
