weather in February........

We are coming on February 8 for three nights. Do we need long-johns?

Hey mmhook,

You post made me smile. Since you're from BUFFALO, AC by comparison will be a piece of cake. Other permanent residents can give you a better answer, but my limited February visits would say long-johns are not needed. You might want some deep-pockets though :)

Have a great trip!

February is the coldest month here. If you're planing to go for a long walk on the boardwalk you might want long-johns but if you're casino hopping you'll get quite warm once inside,

If you want to go to The Walk http://www.acoutlets.com/ all the stores are on city streets, it may be advisable for long johns or as Jerrys mentioned, especially the boardwalk. The winter winds coming off the ocean can feel like they are ripping through your clothes & skin right to the bone.

BTW, a lot of boardwalk stores are open in the off season, but most close between 5 & 7 pm. Be sure to check The Walk's hours after the Christmas shopping season as they also close earlier that time of year.

Weather can be unpredictable with NorthEast winters, so you may find yourself in a warm spell, a nor'easter and/or cloudy days with no precipitation and no sun.

the only thing i wouldn't recommend is walking anywhere near the boardwalk at night. i went in december (which is actually not as cold as feb) and i hated myself every second i was out walking - and this was 1 block away from the boardwalk!

but again, if youre from buffalo, this should be nothing new to you

January is actually the coldest month, February only seems colder as winter drags on.


The Feb 8, 2009 high was 67 °F, and the low was 35 °F.


I also doubt you will need any additional insulation unless you plan to sit out on the Boardwalk or beach a lot.
