Wondering what the Governors Ball weather is like? We can help with that.
No need to be wary of the New York climate – Governor’s Ball takes place when the big city is around its most pleasant average temperatures annually. While there is a realistic opportunity to experience some rain during the festival, when conditions are normal, expect sunshine during the peak of the afternoon, settling somewhere around the mid-80s.
Mid-80’s might not sound like much, but the considerable amount of humidity makes for a somewhat uncomfortable few hours when the sun is shining at its brightest. It’s not uncommon for conditions to hit partly cloudy territory, a welcome reprieve during the long stretch of afternoon.
Conditions can chill down to 60 degrees during the late night – don’t try to be a hard ass and skip out on the warm layers of clothing – you WILL be cold. Do you really want to be fixated on a sweatshirt while trying to take in Dinosaur Jr.? You’re better than that.
What’s the weather at Governor’s Ball like? Damn near perfect, just make sure you take care of the later hours by planning ahead — something that rarely happens with music festivals anywhere.
