It’s another one for the record books. The high at JFK reached 92 degrees Sunday, beating the 1964 record of 89 degrees. Also, a high of 90 was reported at Bridgeport, which broke the 1992 record of 89 degrees.
You can expect a cooldown to kick off the work week. A strong cold front is making its way from Canada, which will eventually knock down temperatures. It could also spark a few isolated showers and storms Sunday evening. These storms are fast movers packed with gusty winds. The threat does diminish after sunset, and overnight temps will be noticeably cooler with lows around 60s in the city.
Those of you who’ve had enough of the heat, get ready for a pleasantly mild Monday with highs mainly in the upper 60s. However, another warmup is in store as highs near 90 by midweek.
As far as the holiday weekend is concerned, there is some uncertainty regarding temperatures. Right now, it looks like another cooldown with a chance for rain Friday, Saturday and Sunday. As always, stay tuned for updates.
