Typical New York City weather: dreadfully cold with snow in the winter and really hot in the summer. New York City is in the Northeastern United States, so the weather is like any other state in the Northeast. During the summer months, from June to August and into September, students will need shorts, short-sleeved shirts, and tank tops. During the winter, students will need coats, gloves, and scarves.

The best weather may be when school first starts in late August. The weather is in the 90s every day, and as September moves along, the temperature drops slightly to the 80s. October generally starts off with good weather, but by the end of the month, it gets colder, with the fall season in full swing and winter on the horizon. Fall is a great time because the leaves start to change color, and combined with the comfortable weather, it makes for a beautiful time in the city. January and February are normally the months when the harsh times of winter hit, with temperatures in the 20s and 30s and the occasional snowfall. March starts off cold, just like February, but it soon starts to heat up as April nears and spring begins. May brings the heat that comes with summer, and the flowers start to come back, as well (unfortunately, so do allergies!). This is basically a weather summary of one year in New York. The weather is unique for sure, but there is always something to do—no matter what time of year it is.
