September Brings NYC Warmest Day of the Year

The summer months of June, July, and August have come and gone, but Tuesday brought New York City its hottest day of the year (so far). The high temperature in Central Park soared to 92°F.

According to the NWS, it was our warmest day since September 11, 2013 when the high was 96°F. The normal high in NYC at this time of year is 80°F.

Highlighting the relatively mild conditions that dominated this summer, Tuesday was also only the seventh time this season that the temperature reached 90°F or higher. The city, on average, typically sees fifteen 90-degree days per year.
