After a cool August, September started off with significant temperature fluctuations, with an unseasonably hot air mass on 9/11 bringing temperatures well into the 90s with heat index values in the 100s, followed only a few days later by highs in the 60s and lows in the 40s. The second half of the month generally ended up slightly below average, and the month as a whole ended up 0.1 degree below average in Central Park.
