Typical weather in Niagara Falls

Niagara Falls is a four-season destination, with differing climate year-round.

In the spring, the daily high temperatures in March, April and May range from 5° to 19° Celsius (41° to 66° degrees Fahrenheit). At night, temperatures dip slightly. While snow usually ends by mid-April, lingering ice on Lake Erie may result in cooler than usual breezes. Pack layers so that you may dress for the weather of the day. A medium to light jacket is recommended.

In the summer months of June, July and August, temperatures can range 25° to 31° degrees Celsius (75º to 88° degrees Fahrenheit) with usually bright and sunny days. Rainfall has been sporadic over the past several years, and storms are seldom severe. Pack shorts and short-sleeved shirts, but a heavier outfit may come in handy if temperatures dip.

In the fall season, September, October and November, temperatures range from 22° to 8° degrees Celsius (72° to 46° degrees Fahrenheit). Snow is not typical until late in the season, but rainy and cloudy skies are common. Pack pants and long-sleeved shorts, and bring along a light jacket for when the temperatures grow cooler as the sun sets.

In winter, the daily high temperatures (December, January and February) range from 2° to -0.9° degrees Celsius (36° to 30° degrees Fahrenheit). Winter days are often cold and clear, and snow is moderate. Snow storms are not frequent, and lake effect snow is typically heavier closer to Buffalo. Pack lots of warm clothing, winter boots and a good, heavy jacket. The brink of the Falls is typically much colder than the rest of the area.
