Of course, some years are much hotter than others. Here's a quick breakdown of the years which had multiple 100 degree weather temperature days.

The years are broken down according to the exact number of times that 100 degree days occurred. For example: if the temperature reached 100 degrees three times in one summer, that year is listed just under three times. That same year could also be listed for all the two and one 100 degree years, but is only listed for the years when three 100 degree days occurred.

100 Degree Days Four Times in One Year - twice

Only two times since 1870 has New York City had a summer where the temperature reached or exceeded 100 degrees on four different days. The years were 1953 and 1966.

100 Degree Days Three Times in a Year - five times

Five times since 1870 New York City has a had a summer where the temperature reached or exceeded 100 degrees on three different days. Those years were 1993, 1977, 1955, 1948 and 1944.

100 Degree Days Just Once in a Year - ten times

Ten times the weather temperature reached or exceeded 100 degrees in a summer in New York City on just one day. Those years were 2001, 1995, 1952, 1934, 1930, 1918, 1917, 1911 and 1898 and 1881.

The hottest day in New York City history was July 9, 1936, when the temperature was a scorching 106 degrees. I love weather history, and the year 1936 saw the most record hot weather temperatures records set all across the United States, including in New York City.
