    New York weather February

    What's the weather like in New York in February?

    Sitting on the east coast of the United States, New York has a continental climate. This means winter’s cold, and there’s some rain all year round. February’s the driest month of the year, but if you're visiting New York at this time you should pack plenty of warm clothes.

    Climatic influences

    New York has four distinct seasons, with temperatures starting to get warmer in February after a really cold January. A bit of heat’s kept in by the Appalachian Mountains to the west of New York City, while offshore winds mean the Atlantic doesn't make the city even colder. You'll get some shelter from tall buildings and skyscrapers which stop winds, while you can expect to see light snow in February.

    Averages

    The average high temperature in New York during February is 7ºC, and you'll need a decent winter coat as well as your hat and gloves, as it drops to -3ºC at night. The sea temperature’s a chilly 6ºC, while humidity’s low. Typical rainfall’s 57mm over nine rainy days, and you can expect 11 hours of daylight with six hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate, while sunset’s around 6.15pm at the start of the month and gradually gets earlier.
