The Weather in New York in June

Updated: April 17, 2024

This post summarizes the weather in New York City in June, including tips on what to wear and things to do.


Early in June, afternoon high temperatures are very nice, averaging mostly in the low to mid-70sF (22-24C).  

Early morning lows will fall to the mid to upper 50sF (13-15C) while a couple of colder mornings can see lows down into the upper 40sF to near 50F (9-10C).

As the month progresses, temperatures warm up into the upper 70sF to lower 80sF (26-28C) while the overnight lows tend to be mostly in the mid-60sF (17-20C).  

How Hot Can NYC Get in June?

On a few of the warmer days, the high temperatures can briefly reach the upper 80sF (30-31C) within about 2 days, on average reaching 90F (32C) or more.  

During past years, June has seen extremes as high as 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, such as our free walking tours.

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.

1. Light Clothes

Comfortable, breathable clothes are best. Sundresses, shorts, and cotton tops are best. Pack sunscreen, a water bottle, and a hat as well. 

2. Sweater

Early June can still have some cool nights, so a light sweater or windbreaker will come in handy.

A cardigan like this one by LaLaBEE is great for going from daytime to evening dinner.

It will also come in handy in case a museum you are visiting is extra cold! 

3. Comfortable Shoes

You need to pack comfortable shoes for all the walking you'll be doing in New York in June.

We recommend a comfortable sandal like this one by Teva. It's also waterproof, so if you're caught in some showers you won't have to worry about soggy shoes!
