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

You’ll get continental weather if you’re going to New York, which is on the east coast of the United States. Things are getting colder in November as the chilly winter gets closer. It’s still a great time to visit The City That Never Sleeps, as long as you take lots of warm clothes with you.

Climatic influences

New York has four distinct seasons, and things do get cold in winter. The Appalachian Mountains and offshore winds stop the Atlantic Ocean making things even colder though. New York City’s tall buildings and skyscrapers also trap some heat, and will give you some shelter from the wind.


The average high in New York’s 12ºC in November, which drops to a chilly 5ºC at night. Make sure you bring a hat and scarf as well as a big coat. You’ll probably want to stay out of the sea as it’s just 12ºC, but at least there’s no humidity to worry about. There’s 69mm of rain over 12 days, although you can still expect ten hours of daylight each day with five hours of sunshine. UV levels will be low. The sunset comes forward to 4.45pm in early November when daylight saving ends.

Things to Do

Head to Museum Mile, which is to the east of Central Park. It has some great museums including the Guggenheim. Explore New York’s iconic shopping scene and browse the latest winter styles, before heading to Times Square for a comedy show or to Broadway for a musical.
