NEW YORK -- Temperatures finally made it back into the 50s Thursday — but as expected, it came at the cost of some very wet weather.

The radar shows there will be more showers throughout the rest of the day and into the evening. The rain may be heavy and there could be a few claps of thunder.

This weather system will pivot away from the area overnight and it will begin to dry out — but the wind will shift from southerly to northwesterly, meaning it will start getting chillier again.

While we can't rule out a passing shower, much of Friday will be dry with a high a few degrees either side of 50. That's about 5 to 7 degrees below normal.

Then it gets even colder for the weekend.

The normal high for this time of year should be around 58 but temperatures over this weekend are likely to stay in the 40s. Worse yet, snow may be in the forecast again.

A quickly developing system for Saturday could bring us a period of wet snow mixed with rain. It's very hard to get snow to stick at this time of year, especially if it's a daytime event. However, any snow that still may be falling in the evening could leave a slushy accumulation of a coating to an inch or two, especially on colder surfaces.

It will clear out on Sunday but will be unusually chilly for this time of year. There are continued signs that this winter-like pattern will begin to re-align next week so we can finally get back to more springtime weather.
