Weather late August/early September

Hi everyone,

I'm going to NY end of the month for about a week, and was just wondering how the weather usually is around this time of year?

Would be ideal to know what to pack exactly.

Thanks :)

To find accurate historical data about the weather:


Local Weather tab...choose History Data

Enter location:

Choose a date (don't forget to change the Year field or it won't work!!)

Click on the weekly tab ....scroll down to the table that gives you lots of info (some useful, some not so useful!):

Temp. (°C) Dew Point (°C) Humidity (%) Sea Level Press. (hPa) Visibility (km) Wind (km/h) Precip. (mm) Events

To get information on the next weeks and the previous year/s, scroll up and use the arrows and the date field.

I usually look at the previous 4-5 years and it gives me a good idea of what's likely and therefore how to prepare for a trip. It's never failed me...knock on wood!!!

It hasn't been that hot in August. Forecast is showing low 80s next week. Humidity can make it feel worse.

Check the forecast on www.weather.gov a couple of days before you come.

It should be nice. I might bring a hoodie or very light jacket for late night...

So far this August it's been downright beautiful and cool. July was sweltering. normally in August it's hot and humid, average probably 85 degrees with high humidity but for instance today I think it's high 70s and low humidity. really beautiful.

Weather has been amazing this August...complete 180 from July. Cool, breezy, pretty dry. Although last summer was similar - July was horrible, August was nice, and then early September was hot, humid, and stormy all down the east coast (and we all learned about derechos).10 day forecast looks good for the moment so hopefully it stays this way until September!
