8 of those 14 years are in the last 20 years…I’m sure that’s just a coincidence.

The other impressive 80° day statistic for Newark is how early the first 80° of the year has been arriving. The 2-21 -18 earliest is one of the more extreme high temperature records that our area has seen in recent years. 5 of the top 10 earliest have occurred since 2011. But the cooler recent Novembers relative to the rest of the fall hasn’t allowed any late 80° records to be challenged recently.

1962-65 had less than 20 days with a min of 70 or higher...only 8 in 1962...1992 had 14...the last time Central Park had less than 20...in the 1960's 30 or more would be a lot...now 30 is a low number...

1992 was one of the coldest and wettest summers I can remember- Pinatubo influenced?

1993 should be on that list!  We hit 80 on November 15th the day after the marathon and we all know how that winter turned out ;-)

Yeah, 1993 was the latest 80° day on record at Newark.

Tomorrow will likely be the warmest day of the week in the Middle Atlantic region. Temperatures will push toward 90° in Philadelphia and the middle and upper 80s in New York City and Newark. A shower or thunderstorm is possible late in the day or at night as a weak cold front crosses the region.

The latest ensemble guidance has backed off the development of a sustained PNA- near or just after mid-September. A sustained PNA- typically sees a higher frequency of large rainfall (1" or more daily precipitation) in and around the New York City area during September. The current AO+/PNA+ pattern favors more frequent but smaller precipitation events often resulting from frontal passages rather than organized systems.

A warm September outcome remains on track. Despite a cooler than normal first 7-10 days (for example, the 9/1-7 anomaly was -2.5° in New York City and the 9/1-10 anomaly was -1.6° in New York City), September will likely feature near normal to somewhat warmer than normal temperatures in much of the region. The second half of the month could feature above to perhaps much above normal temperatures. As a result, 2021 is increasingly likely to become the 6th out of the last 7 years during which September has had a mean temperature of 70° or above in New York City. Prior to 2000, New York City saw such warmth on average once every five years. In short, September has become more an extension of summer than a gateway to autumn in the New York City area.

Fall 2021 will likely be wetter to much wetter than normal in the northern Middle Atlantic region. Since 1869, there have been 9 August cases where New York City picked up 20.00" or more rainfall during the summer. Two thirds of those cases (and 4/5 of those with summer mean temperatures of 73.0° or above) had 17.00" or more fall precipitation in New York City. 2011 is probably the closest match in terms of precipitation and a nearly identical summer mean temperature. Mean fall precipitation for those 9 cases was 14.86". The median was 17.35". The 1991-2020 normal value is 12.27".

The ENSO Region 1+2 anomaly was -0.2°C and the Region 3.4 anomaly was -0.3°C for the week centered around September 8. For the past six weeks, the ENSO Region 1+2 anomaly has averaged +0.22°C and the ENSO Region 3.4 anomaly has averaged -0.43°C. Neutral ENSO conditions will likely prevail through September. Afterward, La Niña conditions could begin to develop.

The SOI was +14.86 today.

The preliminary Arctic Oscillation (AO) figure was +0.584 today.

On September 12 the MJO was in Phase 3 at an amplitude of 1.603 (RMM). The September 11-adjusted amplitude was 1.417 (RMM).

Based on sensitivity analysis applied to the latest guidance, there is an implied 75% probability that New York City will have a warmer than normal September (1991-2020 normal). September will likely finish with a mean temperature near 71.0° (1.8° above normal).

That was back when temps at NYC and EWR were very much in line as NYC hit 80 that day too.

Now Central Park’s trees have created a fairly large summer temperature divergence.

Summers of 1991, 1993, 1995, 1999 and 2002 I think were the really hot summers I remember where NYC was in line with the rest of the urban weather reporting sites, it was after 2002 that I started to notice a huge divergence.  Not coincidentally, 2002 was our last really dry summer too  which also kept foliage in check (2010 was also dry but by then the foliage was already out of control.)  Looking back at my pictures from 2002, that was my last summer where the grass was yellow lol and looked like straw.  1995 and 2002 were the two years I have pictures of which had this parched grass.  Not even 2010 had that.

By the way looking at old pictures is a really good way to tell what weather was like in a specific year.  I'm really glad I take pictures during and after every storm and also at random times during the year to catalog plant growth.  It has a three dimensional aspect to it that one simply cannot get just by looking at data of specific years.  It adds context to the data.

The next 8 days are averaging 77degs.(70/85), or +8.

Month to date is  71.4[-0.6].       Could be  73.4[+2.5] by the 23rd, but more likely 72.4[+1.4].

Reached 79 here yesterday.

Today p. cloudy, s./sw. wind, 83-86, rain after 9pm.

72*(97%RH) here at 6am, dirty sky.         80* by Noon but fell back to 77* at 3pm on strong s. wind.       Got back to 80* again at 6pm.

Any chance to start adding HPN or SWF to this list? 

High of 78° at HPN. Another very warm start to the day across the area. We’ll see if HPN can add another 65°minimum to the list making it to 54 days. The higher dew points in recent years allowed record numbers of 65° or warmer minimums.

Those two and KDXR would really give context to what's happening north of the immediate metro area. 

Warmest summer minimums on record  this year north of NYC Metro with the continuing record high dew points.

I'd be curious to see what the shortest periods are between last and first 80 degree day

 

1882 is probably the winner, at NYC the first 80F reading was May 31 and the last one was Sep 20. That is 111 days using the counting method in the tables already posted by others (it works out to the number of days between the end dates so not including either of them, if you included both of the end dates, then 113 days). 1875 is probably second, at NYC the first 80F reading was May 20 and the last one was September 10. That is 112 days (or 114 counting both end dates). 

That latter (Sept 10) is not an extreme earliest date for termination of the 80 or + season, 1902 (Sept 2), 1876 (Sept 4) and 1871 (Sept 6) finished earlier, but 1871 had a much earlier onset with 85F on April 8 and therefore longer seasons. The extreme for latest onset appears to be June 7 (1924) followed by May 31 (1882); also later than 1875 was May 25 (in 1873) but that season terminated on Sep 29 (lasting 15 days longer than 1882), also 1898 started its season on May 20 but went into early October to reach 137 days.

1988 began its season May 23, 1904 began its season on May 24, 1916 and 1946 on May 25, 1920 and 1999 on May 28. In 1869 with some missing data but likely much cooler than 80F from maps available, the first 80 deg day is also May 13 and the first to exceed 80 was May 26. 1883 joins the group for the >80F short duration because the season ended in late August but after some very cool weather for most of the autumn an outlier 80F occurred on Oct 14 so this year did not make the first table, as I show in the following tables (80 or higher seasons shorter than 135 days in table 1, >80 seasons shorter than 125 days in table 2): 

(I have used the same convention for counting dates between the first and last 80 or + and (>80) as shown in other tables above, which I worked out to be the number of days between the start and end date, not counting either of them. The actual duration of the season adds two days (the end points) to my values and those in the other tables above.)

To tie the record set in 1990, 2021 will need to record 80 F or higher on October 27 (first reading was 82F Mar 26).

To match fourth place 1985, 2021 will need to record 80F or higher on October 12. 

_________________________________________

Most of the short seasons were before 1905, but a few have happened in more recent years. Oddly, some rather hot summers join this list (1901, 1966 and 1988 can all be found).

Hoping this graph will copy from my excel file where I did this analysis.  

            1869 - 2020                    
    Duration (days) of 80 deg seasons (blue is 80 or +, orange is >80)                            
     ... Many years have the same durations for these (if end points are >80)

I'd be curious to see what the shortest periods are between last and first 80 degree day

 

EWR: 127 days (5/6-9/11/1966 and 5/11-9/16/1971)
JFK: 97 days (6/5-9/11/1966)
LGA: 112 days (5/21-9/11/1966 and 5/24-9/14/1981)
NYC: 111 days (5/31-9/20/1882)

Accidentally posted in the climate change forum (when did the definition of climate change so drastically that this was there?):

Morning thoughts…

Today will be partly sunny and very warm. High temperatures will likely reach the middle and upper 80s in most of the region.  An approaching cold front could trigger some late day or evening showers or thunderstorms. Likely high temperatures around the region include:

New York City (Central Park): 85°

Newark: 89°

Philadelphia: 89°

Normals:

New York City: 30-Year: 76.6°; 15-Year: 77.1°

Newark: 30-Year: 78.1°; 15-Year: 78.9°

Philadelphia: 30-Year: 79.3°; 15-Year: 80.0°

Tomorrow will be mostly cloudy and cooler. Some showers are possible.

Good afternoon Don. Considering the direction we are headed, it has obvious relevance in both threads. As always ….
