What’s the weather like in New York in July?
New York has a continental climate as it’s on the east coast of the United States. There are four distinct seasons and you’ll get lovely warm weather in July. There’s still rain over the summer, although this is usually in short showers. Offshore winds mean the Atlantic Ocean doesn’t cool things down as much, while the Appalachian Mountains help keep heat in. New York City’s tall buildings and skyscrapers also trap heat, and will protect you from the winds.
The average high in New York during July is 29ºC, so you can look forward to lazy afternoons relaxing in Central Park. Temperatures only drop to 20ºC at night so it’s still nice and warm in the evenings. The sea temperature’s 22ºC while humidity’s moderate. Typical rainfall’s 104mm over nine rainy days, although you can still expect 15 hours of daylight with nine hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be very high so pack some sun cream. Sunset’s just after 8.30pm at the start of July.
