Weather Overview for New Orleans
Summer, from June
till September, is uncomfortably hot and humid. The average high temperature
idles in the low 30s and rainfall is at its highest. However, sunshine is also
at its highest levels as rain usually falls in short but heavy thunderstorms.
Night times are sticky as temperatures remain high in the mid 20s. From June
the hurricane season starts and as summer progresses the chance of a hurricane
increases. Travelling to
Autumn, in October and November, is much more pleasant as rainfall and humidity abate. The period of greatest threat from hurricanes passes with the end of summer, and rainfall falls to its lowest levels. Temperatures are much more pleasant, October seeing an average high of 26°C and November seeing one of 21°C. Night times cool off considerably to an average low of 18°C in October and actually get quite chilly in November at around 13°C.
Winter, from December till February, is incredibly mild. The average high temperature falls to its lowest of 17°C in January when the average low is 8°C. Temperatures do fall down to freezing a few times during the winter but snow is very rare. It is often overcast and the sun shines for around five hours per day. Rainfall increases again to the normal, high levels around 100 mm per month.
Spring, from March till May, is warmer than many British summers. The average high temperature rises to 22°C in March, 25°C in April and 28°C in May. Night times go from being cold to refreshingly cool, rainfall levels barely change and the sun comes out for longer and longer. This is a great time to visit the city as it is before hurricane season and enjoys such moderate temperatures.
