New York City Heads Into Third Winter of Record Snowdrought

by Mindy Cohn

As winter 2023 looms, New York City residents wonder how much longer the City's snow drought will continue.

"Central Park is still on track for the longest consecutive days without receiving at least 1" of snowfall at 650 days," the National Weather Service New York, NY, posted yesterday on X. "The prior record was 383 days. Central Park has snowfall records going as far back as 1869. As it stands, no snow is forecasted for the next seven days."

New York is a state of extremes, with the all-time highest temperature record set by Troy on July 22, 1926, at 108° F. 

New York's all-time lowest temperature was -52° F recorded at Old Forge on February 18, 1979. 

New York's all-time highest 24-hour precipitation record was 13.57 inches and was recorded at Islip-Long Island MacArthur Airport on August 12–13, 2014. 

The all-time highest 24-hour snowfall in New York was 49 inches and was measured in Watertown on November 14 and 15, 1900.
