The Weather in New York City

It doesn’t matter whether the sun is shining or snow is falling - New York is the city that never sleeps so there’s plenty for travellers to do in the Big Apple all year-round.


Spring in New York can be unpredictable, with sunny days one week and thunderstorms the next. But usually the temperature is mild and pleasant, with sporadic rain showers. Average temperatures for spring range from 7°C to 16°C.


Summers can be hot and sticky with humidity, so if you don’t like to sweat then maybe avoid the months of July and August. But summers are also sunny and a great time for outdoor activities. Average temperatures range from 19°C to 28°C.


Temperatures are mild and pleasant in autumn and the air is crisp. The changing colour of the leaves in October makes it a popular time to visit. Average temperatures range from 10°C to 18°C.


Winters in New York are usually cold and wet. Snow is likely, although rarely in massive amounts. The concrete skyscrapers tunnel the wind, making it often feel colder than it really is. Average temperatures range from -2°C to 5°C.
