NYC Average July Temperature is 6 Degrees Above Normal

_44003643_germany_afp416Is this global warming, or something far more sinister going on?

Relief from the heat wave that clobbered the city this weekend is on the way.

But it may be too little too late.

“Temperatures will be cooler,” meteorologist John Murray of the National Weather Service promised. “Relatively cooler. By a few degrees.”

Expect a high of 90 degrees Monday, three degrees cooler than Sunday, with a break from the punishing humidity that has smothered the city.

Despite Sunday’s modest dip in temperature, the city may be facing its hottest July ever.

The average temperature in Central Park for the month so far is 82 degrees, 5.7 degrees above normal and ahead of the July 1999 record of 81.4 degrees, according to the National Weather Service.

“It’s been exhausting,” complained Johanna Santos, 34, of New Rochelle, who sat on a bench waiting to meet friends in St. Nicholas Park in Harlem yesterday. “What makes it unbearable is the humidity.”

The city’s playgrounds gave some a chance to cool down.

Charisse and Jongnic Bontemps, both 36, watched their 6-year-old son, Aiden, run through a sprinkler at Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem.

“This is the best way for him to cool off,” Charisse Bontemps said of her son. “He just loves the water.”

The family is on vacation from Monterey, Calif.

“It’s been brutal,” said Jongnic Bontemps. “We don’t mind sweating though.”

Some New Yorkers who’ve had it with the heat escaped summer at the World Ice Arena in Flushing Meadows Corona Park in Queens, which offers public ice skating sessions daily.

“In the winter it’s cold, and it’s even colder in here,” beamed Jaylene Aponte, of Maspeth, Queens, celebrating her 11th birthday. “It’s really cool, since it’s hot outside.”

Jaylene’s friends were delighted with the party at the rink, which is kept at a constant 64 degrees.

“I didn’t even know this was open in the summer,” said Keara Moon, 10, of Rego Park, Queens. “In here it just feels wonderful.”

Joanna Carrero, 26, of Bushwick, Brooklyn, even wore a jacket and gloves to accompany her 12-year-old sister to a skating lesson.

“We definitely had to dig that stuff out,” Carrero said. “We packed all the winter gear away.”

Last July the hottest day of the month was a mere 86 degrees. Fifteen days so far this month have broken 90 degrees.

A high of 90 degrees is forecast for Tuesday and 91 degrees Wednesday.
