This post summarizes the weather in New York City in June, including tips on what to wear and things to do. June is another great month to visit New York City as summer has arrived and yet on most days you will experience temperatures that are quite comfortable. Early in June, afternoon high temperatures are very nice, averaging mostly in the low to mid 70s f (22-24C). Early morning lows will fall to the mid to upper 50s f (13-15C) while a couple colder morning can see lows down into the upper 40s f to near 50f (9-10C).
As the month progresses, temperatures warm up into the upper 70s f to lower 80s f (26-28C) while the overnight lows tend to be mostly in the mid-60s f (17-20C). On a few of the warmer days the high temperatures can briefly reach into the upper 80s f (30-31C) with about 2 days, on average reaching 90f (32C) or more. During past years, June has seen extremes as high has 101f (38.3C) and as low as 44f (6.7C).
Sunny or at least partly sunny skies prevail on about 20 days this month so it is a great time for outdoor activities. Some rain occurs on about 10-11 days; however, significant rainfalls of 0.5 inches (13mm) or more occur only on about 3 days and mostly in the form of showers or thundershowers.
June is the beginning of summer in the city so you should dress for comfort as most days will be warm. Early June can still have some cool nights, a light sweater or windbreaker will come in handy.
It’s also always a good idea to carry an umbrella just in case a random shower hits the city. And don’t forget your most comfortable walking shoes and a water bottle so that you can join us on many fantastic walking tours around the city!
