Weather

The climate is changeable with moderate rainfall throughout the year.
In the summer, visitors will encounter pleasantly warm-to-hot temperatures on summer forays to the Catskill, Adirondack or Finger Lakes areas.
Temperatures in the upper 70s F/25 C to mid 80s F/29 C are common in all but the higher elevations. Nights are cool in the interior
Upstate: Lows can dip to 40 F/4 C, so take along something warm.

Fall is the prettiest season all over the state. The foliage is in full glory, and New York City has lost its high temperatures and stifling humidity. Comfortable temperatures of 60-72 F/15-22 C predominate.

Winter snowfall can be very heavy in the snow belt along Lakes Erie and Ontario (one location reports an annual average of 225 in/572 cm). The Adirondacks receive less, but there's always plenty of snow for skiing and snowmobiling. The state as a whole averages more than 40 in/102 cm per year. Temperatures can be bitter in winter, but are generally in the low teens to mid 20s F/-12 to -4 C.

Spring near Lake Ontario and Lake Erie can be cool and cloudy, but average state temperatures are in the 30s-60s F/1-20 C in April and May.
