What’s the weather like in New York in April?

New York has a continental climate due to its location on the east coast of the United States. Temperatures rise in April as the city leaves winter behind, but there’s rain all year round. April’s one of the wettest months but you’ll still get plenty of warm and sunny weather.

Climatic influences

New York has four distinct seasons, with spring taking over in April. Temperatures can reach the mid-20s(C), although there’s still a chance of snow at this time. The Appalachian Mountains to the west help keep some heat in, while offshore winds reduce the cooling effect of the Atlantic Ocean. New York City’s also protected by its tall buildings and skyscrapers, which keep away some of the cold and wind.


The typical high temperature in New York is 16ºC in April, which drops to 6ºC at night so don’t forget to bring some warm clothes. The expected sea temperature’s 8ºC, while humidity’s low and average rainfall’s 96mm over 15 rainy days. You can still expect 13 hours of daylight with eight hours of sunshine each day, while UV levels will be high so pack some sun cream. Sunset’s almost 8pm by the end of the month.
