Weather in York

York is filled year round with events to attract shoppers, horse-lovers, foodies and culture vultures. In winter, temperatures fall to around 1°C (33°F) and rise to around 21°C (69°F) in the summer. Spring and summer are the best time of year to visit this northern city, with its annual Race meetings starting in May and continuing until October over dedicated weekends. The city tends to be heaving with visitors in the summer but the same is true in the run-up to Christmas, when visitors descend on the atmospheric old town festooned with Yuletide decorations for festive gifts.

Actual Forecast Location: We have 830+ weather locations on the worldtravelguide.net website. Where no exact location is available we have used the nearest appropriate forecast point.
Symbols indicate the predominant weather for the day in question, calculated based on a weighting of different types of weather. So if a day is forecast to be sunny with the possibility of a brief shower, then we will see a sunny or partly cloudy symbol rather than a rain cloud.
The maximum temperature is the highest temperature forecast between dawn and dusk, and the minimum temperature is the lowest temperature expected from dusk on the day in question to dawn the next day. The temperature is in °C, or Celsius.
Wind speed and direction are the conditions expected at midday. Wind direction is based on a 16 point compass. W, SW, SSW, etc. The wind direction states where the wind originates. Wind speed is listed in MPH or miles per hour.
Humidity levels indicates how much water vapour the air contains compared to the maximum it could contain at that temperature. As a general guide:
  • 0 to 30 is very low
  • 31 to 50 is low
  • 51 to 70 is moderate to low
  • 71 to 80 is moderate
  • 81 to 90 is moderate to high
  • 91 to 100 is high
Pressure is measured in millibars (mb)
