Also, the first warmest reading cooler than 80+ since 2015.


Halloween 2020 had a high/low of 46/32, producing a mean temperature of 39. This was the coldest October day since 10/29/2011 (high/low of 45/33), the day a ridiculously early snowstorm hit New York City and New England.


Would you know if this year had the shortest time between latest (May 9) and earliest sub-35 temps?


March had a warmer reading than October (77 vs 74). Has this happened or no? Is 1989 (82 in March vs 77 in October) the only other year in which this happened?


Besides 1989 and 2020, March's warmest reading has topped October's in 10 other years (going back to 1900): 1998 (86 vs. 74); 1990 (85 vs. 84); 1987 (76 vs. 72); 1985 (82 vs. 80); 1981 (77 vs. 71); 1977 (81 vs. 70); 1945 (86 vs. 80); 1929 (77 vs. 74); 1923 (76 vs. 74); and in 1921 (84 vs. 77.)

If it gets to 75 degrees this week when was the last time November's highest reading exceeded October?


The last time for such an occurrence was in 2003, when the warmest temperature in November was 79 while the warmest reading in October was 77. And it's happened in six other years since 1900: 1929, 1974, 1981, 1987, 1993 and 1994.
