you’re wrong when you said, “July had 14 days with highs in the 90s, the most in July since 2010” cause July 2011 also had fourteen ninety degree days. also, this joined nine (not eight) other Julys with 14 or more 90° days, cause again, I presume, for some reason, you omitted July 2011 when you mentioned this.

When was the last time nyc had 16 or more 90°+ days through july 31

Thanks for catching this. I noticed that I had the 14 reflected for 2011 on the chart of top 10 hottest Julys.

Rob

The previous year it happened was in 2011 (also in 2010), and the 16th occurrence was on the same date as this year - 7/30. Including 2020, 23 years have had 16 days of 90+ high by 7/31. All but one of these years was after 1941.

Is the 67 degrees the warmest low temperature for any month? Or was there an August with a "higher" low? Thanks.

Henry

One mistake needs to be corrected about the two dry months. They were May and June; before July, April had the most rainfall of any month in the year so far (4.49 inches), even though it was an average amount. June is noteworthy for having 15 consecutive days with no measurable precipitation.

Rob

Hi Harry, thanks for catching this.

Rob

Ken, the reading is the warmest coolest reading of any month.

William

to answer Ken’s question, yes, the 67° is in fact the warmest “coldest” reading for any calendar month of all time. the previous month with this distinction was in July 2008, when its coldest reading was 66°. the warmest “coldest” reading in June of all time is 58°, which happened in six years, and the warmest “coldest” reading in August of all time is 65°, which happened in 2018, 2005 and 1906.
