    New York weather October

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

    With a location on the east coast of the United States, you'll get pleasant temperatures if you're going to New York in October. You'll find it comfortable getting around town as autumn kicks in at this time, although there’s more rain as the month goes on.

    Climatic influences

    New York has four distinct seasons, with October a great time to visit if you prefer to avoid the hot summer and cold winter temperatures. The Appalachian Mountains help keep things from cooling down too much, while offshore winds lessen the cooling effect of the Atlantic Ocean. You'll also get a bit of protection from New York’s skyscrapers and tall buildings, which help to keep some heat in and wind away.

    Averages

    The average high temperature in New York during October is 18ºC, falling to 10ºC at night. You'll be able to chill out in the sun at Central Park some of the time, but you'll want to bring some warmer clothes with you, as the evenings can get quite chilly. Sea temperatures are around 17ºC, while humidity’s low and ranges from around 50% to 90%. Average rainfall’s 84mm over seven rainy days.

    Daylight

    During October you'll get 11 hours of daylight and seven hours of sunshine each day. UV levels will be moderate, while sunset’s just after 7.30pm at the start of the month; if you can get up for an east coast sunrise it’s just before 7am.
