Additional 80 degree days: 3
The first half of September started out with frequent temperature swings, including near-record heat on the 11th with 96 degrees, but with a colder second half of the month as temperatures failed to rise above 80 degrees after the 12th. This did not end up as the last 80 degree day, however, as much warmer than average temperatures were observed in the first week of October, with widespread 80+ degree readings across the area on the 1st, 2nd and 4th. The hottest day was 10/4 with a high of 86 degrees in Central Park and 89 degrees in Newark, NJ.
