NEW YORK — Temperatures continued their climb on Thursday with highs in the lower 70s. That trend looks to continue as we head into the weekend. It will be mostly sunny for much of the period, but a few weak disturbances could bring the risk of an afternoon shower.
Skies will remain mainly clear Thursday night. Overnight temperatures will drop into the lower 50s in the city. The surrounding suburbs will end up in the 40s.
The week will end on a wonderful note. It will be a mostly sunny Friday with a light southwesterly wind developing in the afternoon. That should help bring temperatures up into the mid 70s.
The weekend will feature more of the same. Most of the day will feature partly to mostly sunny skies. During the afternoon, a few weak disturbances could spark up a stray shower each afternoon. The best chance will occur on Sunday. Even so, it shouldn’t spoil either day as it will stay dry for the vast majority.
Temperatures will be in the mid 70s on Saturday, and in the lower 70s on Sunday.
Heading into next week, the risk of showers continues on Monday and Tuesday. The chances remain on the lower end on Monday, however, a frontal boundary could bring a thunderstorm on Tuesday.
By the middle part of next week, we may see warmer temperatures with the possibility of reaching 80 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday.
