Could anyone point me to an online resource that would let me look up the weather forecast for a date in the past? Failing that, could someone tell me what the weather was like in NYC yesterday?

Yesterday, here in NYC, it was in the 40s, and there was a light, cold rain that lasted all day long and into the evening.

If you happened to need something like this for research, like you're writing a novel and you need accurate weather reporting on some past date in the US, you can also try the National Climatic Data Center. Be sure to click on the "free data" link on the side, otherwise they will try to sell you stuff.

Response by poster: Thank you all - your helpful answers are greatly appreciated. That's the resource I was hoping and failing to find, jessamyn - thank you!

Very valuable info for the next time I have to flesh out an alibi... (I was in Toledo that day, it was sunny, so I didn't take my raincoat...)
