Great Post Mike, I was actually going to post the same thing myself tonight. My monthly averages are all the same as yours except I came up with 27.9" for the seasonal average if as you say God forbid it doesn't snow for the next three years, I'm sure it's a rounding thing.

Hoping the 1991-2020 average doesn't end up being 29.9 that will frustrate me to no end.

I think the 27.9" may be more accurate. I just summed up what the rounded numbers would be.

This is as per Donald Sutherland on another board

This morning, the temperature fell to 8° in Central Park. That is the 4th day this winter that the thermometer has fallen below 10°. The last winter with at least as many such days was winter 2014-15 when there were 9. This was also the 11th consecutive day on which the temperature fell below 20°, the most since there were 11 consecutive days from December 17-27, 1989.

NYC’s Average Temperature Through the 11 day period:

1/5: 18.7° (14.3° below normal)

CP, how many days has the temperature not gone above freezing so far at Central park? I think the run in 1961 was 16 days.

I cannot categorically deny it isn't, so maybe.

Today is the 12th straight day with a high below freezing in Central Park (and LGA, JFK, EWR etc)
Streak forecast to end at 13 days..but its will be close, seems to have trended slightly cooler. Short of the record of 16 days but that'd be good enough to tie 3rd place in the Park. 2nd at JFK, 3rd at LGA.

1961 will still be the king! That stretch is still the best one as it was accompanied by two major snowstorms, the JFK Inauguration Snowstorm of 15 inches and the transitional Feb 3 and 4 of 20 inches.There were a few 3 to 4 inch snowfalls in between as well.This recent cold stretch has been meager for snowfall in comparison.

From Don Sutherland - Maybe the actor

Yesterday was the 13th consecutive day on which the temperature remained below freezing in New York City and this morning marked the 13th consecutive day on which the temperature fell below 20°. Both are the longest such periods since the 16-day period from January 19 through February 3, 1961.

The first week of January had a mean temperature of 16.4°. That's the coldest 7-day period since January 16-22, 1994 when the temperature averaged 15.3°

Never question Docs memory, when it comes to weather at least. Very Happy Very Happy

OK, into the dusty annals of weather long past I have found information on that 16 day stretch in 1961.

1) The stretch started January 19 with a high of 27

2)February 1 1961 had a low of 3 in Central Park

3) February 2 had a low of -1

4)February 5 had a high of 39 breaking the streak

I KNEW it was not Feb 2 when the streak ended!!!

It looks like the below freezing streak will end today in New York City at 14 consecutive days. A couple of days short of the record but still a nice streak. No record low temperatures were set in Central Park during the 14 days but there were a few in some of the surrounding stations.

To clear up any confusion from yesterday the streak began on December 26, on Christmas day the temperature did get above freezing in New York City. It will run through January 8 as today in all likelihood it will go above freezing in Central Park with the temperature sitting at 31° there right now.

Yes, it was a nice streak in comparison to the mild periods we have had the last few years.In addition, it gave us here in the HV a White Christmas.1961 still king, though, longer subfreezing period and a lot more snow during that stretch.

For sure Doc, 1961 blows this one away. Also January 1994 saw a much longer period of sustained cold even though it popped above freezing a few of those days.

Yes, CP, that amazing year of '93-'94 with sustained cold and that incredible ice storm where it was pouring rain T Storm style at 21 degrees.There was over 1/2  to 3/4 inch of ice on the ground and the temperatures plunged staying below 15 degrees for a week.Towns ran out of road salt and schools close nearly a week.I was using a pick axe to break up the ice on the walk and driveway,LOL.Had to get to work, when you are self employed, if you don't work you don't eat,LOL, no sick days or snow days allowed!!!!
