This post is about the weather in November in NYC, including tips on what to wear as well as things to do. The weather is still fairly mild, and there are several great events in the city this month.
The weather in New York in November is noted for falling temperatures yet without the prolonged cold snaps that can occur during the winter months.
Early this month afternoon high temperatures are still fairly mild; mostly in the upper 50s f to near 60f (about 15C) with overnight lows in the mid-40s f (7-8C).
Towards the end of this month, the daytime high temperatures will have fallen into the upper 40s f to near 50f (9-10 C) with overnight lows mostly in the mid to upper 30s f (2-3 C).
Expect on 3-5 nights, this month, to see the temperatures dip to 32f (0 C) or less, especially near the end of this month.
On the bright side, you can expect about 18-19 days this month having sunny or partly sunny skies with about 12-13 days being mostly overcast.
About 9-10 days during November will see some precipitation; however, only about 3 days see significant amounts of 0.5 inches (13mm) or more.
Snow is fairly rare in November but a light dusting does occur about once every couple of years with an inch (about 2.4 cm) or more snowfall about once every decade.
Bring clothes that suit both mild to cold weather and it is best to dress in layers. A couple of heavy sweaters and at least one medium-weight jacket or coat is a good idea, especially during the second half of this month.
For a full list of November activities including the Top 10 events, free events, family-friendly activities, things to do at night and more, check our extensive post on Things to do in November.
And if you are planning on visiting many of NYC’s top attractions, then you should consider a tourist discount pass as you could save up to 50% of retail ticket prices to tours, attractions, and restaurants.
Below are just a few highlights. From giant balloons to a massively tall Christmas tree, to thousands of people running 26 miles through NYC’s 5 boroughs, November is a huge month!
