The week started on a cool night as temperatures dropped into the 40s and failed to reach 60 degrees for first time since the end of May. According to the National Weather Service, it is the second latest sub-50 degree reading ever for New York. After another cool night, temperatures will be on the upswing, climbing well above normal by Wednesday.
The winds will ease temporarily on Monday night and skies will clear out. That will help bring down the temperatures toward the mid to upper 40s once again in the city. Some outlying areas will end up dropping into the upper 30s.
On Tuesday, the winds will be back up, gusting to around 20 to 30 mph at times. Fortunately, the sun will help bring back the temperature up into the lower 60s during the day.
Through the middle part of the week, the winds will shift more southwesterly as an area of high pressure settles across the Southeastern US. Temperatures will soar back into the low to mid 70s on Wednesday and Thursday.
Early on Friday, an approaching cold front could bring the risk of showers around. A better chance develops on Saturday as secondary front passes through the region. Temperatures will trail back down into the mid 60s by Saturday. Dry weather returns on Sunday, but temperature will hold in the lower 60s.
