  1. today was the 14th day in a row with a min 70 or higher to start August...the record is 18 set in 1988...NYC has 38 days with a min 70 or higher so far...since 1930 NYC is averaging almost 33 days with a min 70 or higher and a consecutive streak of almost 9....the 1950's and 60's had the lowest amounts...that was probably due to some dry summers...1962 had only 8 such days...2005 had 60///records are 61 in 1906...8 in 1962... year total min 70+ consecutive 70+ 1930..........26............8 1931..........34............7 1932..........25............6 1933..........33............6 1934..........26............4 1935..........29..........11 1936..........20............4 1937..........28............6 1938..........34..........12 1939..........44..........13.......29.9.........7.7 1940..........24............8 1941..........27............6 1942..........20............4 1943..........30............4 1944..........41..........14 1945..........29............4 1946..........11............3 1947..........30............5 1948..........29............6 1949..........43..........10......32.4........6.4 1950..........13............5 1951..........23............7 1952..........38..........12 1953..........34..........10 1954..........18............5 1955..........45..........13 1956..........20............5 1957..........31............5 1958..........26............4 1959..........46..........10......29.4.......7.3 1960..........20............5 1961..........42............9 1962............8............2 1963..........14............5 1964..........19............4 1965..........17............4 1966..........40..........11 1967..........17............5 1968..........29............6 1969..........33............6......23.9.......5.7 1970..........37..........10 1971..........45............9 1972..........30..........15 1973..........37..........11 1974..........26............3 1975..........23..........12 1976..........24............4 1977..........37............9 1978..........31..........13 1979..........42..........17......33.2......10.3 1980..........52..........22 1981..........39............8 1982..........30..........12 1983..........45..........13 1984..........40..........16 1985..........34............6 1986..........31............4 1987..........32............7 1988..........42..........21 1989..........28............5......37.3.....11.4 1990..........32............8 1991..........31............7 1992..........14............4 1993..........35..........10 1994..........35............9 1995..........39..........18 1996..........22............5 1997..........27............8 1998..........39..........11 1999..........45..........13......31.9.......9.3 2000..........22............4 2001..........30............9 2002..........43............9 2003..........33..........15 2004..........28............6 2005..........60..........14 2006..........41..........15 2007..........35............8 2008..........35............8 2009..........18............5.....34.5.......9.3 2010..........54..........22 2011..........40............9 2012..........47..........10 2013..........51..........19 2015..........33............9 2016..........51..........16 2017..........44............7.....45.7.....13.1 2018..........38..........13 as of 8/13..... 1876..........46..........14 1906..........61..........17 1908..........54..........16
  2. I actually have a rain gauge imby...I need to build a shelter for my thermometers...I'm in se Eltonville near Woods of Arden...
  3. 0.29" with this evenings storm...0.60" from yesterdays bomb...
  4. 1977-78 was a wet season starting with November's 7" deluge...there were six major storms that gave NYC over an inch of precipitation (five with snow) all within a months time...that winter was disappointing until January 19th-20th...we did get 37" in 30 days...the winters from 1970-71 to 1975-76 were not very good...there was 1972-73 with virtually no snow...1974-75 had one good week...70-71 was very cold with little snow...as bad as it gets...
  5. not many big snows for people growing up in the seventies...June 1972 had a cool spell with mins in the mid 40's...unheard these days...Aug 76 tied the lowest temp for any August...again unheard of in todays world...
  6. nice T storm moving thru...temp down to 77...
  7. I'd like to see a cold and snowy second half of December with at least a 6" snowfall before Christmas and on the ground Christmas morning...there have not been many Decembers like that lately or over the last 100 years......these Decembers fit this criteria... 1959... 1961... 1963... 1966... 1995... 2009... .................................... 1960...big snow to soon...I'll take though... 2000...big snow to late...ditto... 2010...big snow just late...ditto...

    we have not had a la nina winter followed by a weak positive one since 1950...we had years that were weak negatives that followed la nina or another la nina...the weekly oni went down to +0.1...flounding at best...A late Bloomer?... winter.........DJF oni... 1956-57..........-0.2 and rising ... 1985-86..........-0.5...rising slowly... 2001-02..........-0.1...rising slowly... 2012-13..........-0.4 and steady...
  9. 93 also today imby...
  10. mine were worn out from usage and poor storage...the small March 28th 1959 snow and sleet event on my tenth Birthday stands out in my mind as an early storm that helped me be a weather nut...
  11. 21" in southern Brooklyn on 2/3-4/1961...28" snow depth after the storm...If it wasn't for the change to sleet in the am hours of the 4th it would have been a 30" storm... https://www1.ncdc.noaa.gov/pub/orders/IPS/IPS-F4A8D942-C856-46FD-A00A-C49D1F98E5BE.pdf https://www.ncdc.noaa.gov/IPS/coop/coop.html?_page=2&state=NY&foreign=false&stationID=305796&_target3=Next+>
  12. mine was probably the March 1956 double snowstorms...the 57-58 winter cemented me as a snow freak...The February 58 blizzard is the first storm I observed and the first time I remember seeing dim Sun from the increasing clouds before the storm... I remember the howling winds from the 54 Hurricane season...The first Tex Antoine almanac I got in 1962 made me the weather history buff I am today...
