A suburb of NYC called New City NY, has a 1 F diurnal range today. What are your thoughts. I find it very interesting indeed . I have never seen such a low diurnal range before.

Not too unusual here. In January, one day had a low of -0.1C and a high of 0.4C (32.7F / 31.8F).

Don't some places get their highs at night? I would think it would be possible then to get a negative diurnal range, or at lease zero range...

A negative diurnal range? We get our highs at night frequently but a negative diurnal range doesn't exist. If the high at 11pm is 55F, and the low at 11am is 50F, the diurnal range will be 5F. Doesn't matter what time of the day it occurs.

Additionally, It has been a very warm and humid morning here. Temperature is 67 F at 8:12 AM. This sounds more like early August than November. I am wearing a sleeveless tee today morning to stay comfortable, which has never happened before in November.

Happens a few times a year where I live, including today, the high for today was 15c just after
midnight, currently 13c, dropping to 11c this afternoon, continuing to drop, low temp for the day will be just before midnight tonight, I'm guessing it'll be about 8c.

Low diurnal ranges are not uncommon in my climate. We had quite a few days like this one last winter in London:



7th July 2012 in Edinburgh has the lowest diurnal range I have ever heard of, with a high of 13.1C and a low of 13C. I would be interested to know if anywhere has ever recorded a day with no diurnal range whatsoever.
