Comparatively to New York City, there is slightly more precipitation and snow in Rhode Island. See Providence Weather Table.
Late-spring, late-summer and early-fall are excellent months for visiting Rhode Island, unless you love winter outdoor activities or want to enjoy some beach and sea resorts life in the summer.
Since Fall's foliage is particularly popular, causing millions of weekenders to visit New England, you may want to avoid Autumn's weekends to avoid crowds.
WHEN NOT TO GO TO RHODE ISLAND
Avoid the winter months, when temperatures may reach very low levels.
Some days of July and August may be uncomfortable due to humidity and the high temperatures.
