NYC Monthly Summary: September 2014

September 2014 was warm and dry in New York City. The month saw temperatures reach into the 90s on two separate occasions and it even produced our hottest day of the year. All together, despite a few cooler than average days in the middle of the month, the city’s mean temperature for September was 69.9°F. That is 1.9°F above average.

In terms of precipitation for September, rain events were few and far between. Only 1.21 inches of rain was measured in Central Park, which is 3.07 inches below normal. That makes September 2014 the city’s driest September in nine years. As a result, the city, along with most of the southeastern section of New York State, is currently listed as “abnormally dry” on the U.S. Drought Monitor.
