10 All-Time Coldest Weather Temperature Days in NYC History

The ten all-time coldest temperature days in New York City history.

These are the ten all-time coldest weather days in New York City history. The weather data is from Central Park in Manhattan, New York City, and dates back to 1871. All the dates on this list are below zero readings, and 11 dates are actually listed due to ties.

The all-time coldest day in New York City history occurred on February 9, 1934 when the temperature reached -15 degrees.

I live in the New York City area, and it can get pretty cold in the winter months in the NYC area. Generally though, days when the temperature goes below zero are very rare. On average, even during the coldest month of the year, January, the average daily high is 39.1 degrees. In every other month of the year the average daily high temperature in NYC is over 40 degrees.
