NEW YORK (PIX11) — The shortened workweek will feature a few chances for a few showers and storms. None of it looks like it will spoil any one of the days. That being said, outside from a few widely scattered storms, much of the region has been running dry with no significant rainfall since the first half of June.
Monday night will be a gorgeous night for fireworks. There will be a few clouds around, but it will be comfortable as temperatures trail down to around 70 degrees in the city. Outlying suburbs will be in the upper 50 and lower 60s.
Most of Tuesday will be fine with partly sunny skies with temperatures climbing into the mid-80s. Late in the day, a warm front could spark a few scattered showers and thunderstorms. Across western areas, there is a marginal risk of severe weather as a few isolated storms may produce damaging winds in excess of 60 mph. Most of the storms should diminish in intensity as they approach the city and coast late in the day or evening.
Wednesday will be a very warm and humid day as temperatures climb into the upper 80s. Many places inland could probably hit 90 degrees once again. Eventually, a trailing cold front could bring a scattered shower or thunderstorm during the afternoon.
Thursday looks to be the quiet day of the week featuring mostly sunny skies. It will be more comfortable as temperatures top out in the lower 80s.
By Friday, the chance of scattered showers and storms looks to make a return. Temperatures will top out in the lower 80s and there is a chance that the storm threat may linger into Saturday. Temperatures for the day should hold in the lower 80s
Hopefully, things should clear out by Sunday with mostly sunny skies and highs in the lower 80s.
