After an unusually warm September and a rather balmy start to October, it finally felt like autumn in New York City this weekend.
According to the NWS, the temperature in Central Park only made it to 55°F on Saturday and 58°F on Sunday. The overnight lows were also rather chilly in the mid-40s. This was the coldest weather the city has seen since last spring. Its rather sudden arrival was a bit a jolt for many New Yorkers who had to scramble to find their jackets and sweaters that had been tucked away for months.
The average high and low for NYC at this time of year is 65°F and 51°F, respectively.
