How Many Sunny Days does New York Have Every Year?
It feels like we haven't felt the sun in days here in the Hudson Valley.
I think we could all agree that it's been a rough introduction to Spring. Summer is about a month away, but with the rain and cooler temperatures it has felt more like November than May.
Hopefully that's all behind us now.
With that being said, I came across a website that has determined how many sunny days we actually get here in the great state of New York.
Unfortunately it isn't specific to the Hudson Valley, but it does show us data from NYC, Rochester and Buffalo. So we'll say we're somewhere in between.
According to Current Results Weather and Science Facts, New York averages 2535 sunny hours in a year and averages at 107 clear days. The site says they calculated hours of sunshine averages from 1961 to 1990.
Here's to more clear, sunny days in the Hudson Valley.
