New York Weather

In New York, temperatures hit their peak in July and August, with humidity reaching up to 90 percent. There aren’t usually any snowstorms to worry about until December due to the city’s proximity to the Atlantic Ocean. Mild and pleasant summers are typical for the rest of the state. Keep in mind that winters can be very cold especially upstate, and there may be heavy snow and ice until well into May.
