Weather "reputation" and weather "reality" are two different things.

Nobody from California describes the weather in New York as "mild," for example.

But people from Boston and New England do!

It would be easier (perhaps) to answer you, stilldirrty, if we knew where you are writing from. But I think if you review the thread, you'll find exactly what you want to know.

Also see, if you haven't already: //www.city-data.com/forum/new-y...nters-nyc.html

It should be really easy to Google weather stats.

Does it also rain a lot in NYC. What is the annual rainfall. I heard that it does not snow much, but there are a lot of cloudy days.

Is NYC more a cloudier, colder city? Does that make sense? What is NYC weather most famous for?

For ex. Seattle's weather is famous for being Overcast/Cloudy & Rainy/Drizzle.
Los Angeles -- Sunny almost all year long
San Francisco -- Is famous for its fog (Not so much the sun I think)
Phoenix -- mainly for its Heat.
Yes, there are four distinct seasons, much like the rest of the northeastern and midwestern U.S. I don't think the city is famous for any particular type of weather--we get a little bit of everything.

I think New York City has some of the best 4 season weather. The summers aren't too hot, the winters aren't too cold.

If you want it hot and dry all the time like LA or if you want to avoid snow/ice entirely, then you may not like it. But for most people it's fairly agreeable.

LA is not hot and dry all the time. I was out there a few times in the winter, and some days didn't hit 60. Also, even in the summer, it gets cool at night, since there's no humidity to hold the day's warmth.

Say what you want about New York weather, one thing it is not is perfect, no matter what your taste.

Summers are very iffy no matter what is said here. When it's hot and humid, it's miserable with the concrete containing the heat which is why it does not cool off at night. And the subways are 10 degrees hotter with no movement until the train comes by. You do have nice summer days in between. Fall is beautiful and so is spring. Winters are mild compared to Chicago. But, because most take public transportation, you are OUT in the weather more - walk in more rain, wind, snow and slush than you would if you were driving from place to place.

I don't feel like looking up the actual stats, but as someone who grew up in fairly dry N. California, it feels like the high number of days with rain in NYC are a dirty little secret.

During the summer, it can rain every day for weeks. Of course, the showers are usually only an hour or two, but still almost every day. One summer, we got rained out of EVERY free Monday night movie at Bryant park. However, since the rain is often a respite from the humidity, I've learned to live with it.
